Hi-

Wondering if anyone had any experience using the longer (60 min) ADAT tape format in XT-20's. No marking on the shell for thinner stock that I can see. Using Maxell's, which have worked great in the 42 min. length.

Thanks-

Myles

The XT and XT-20 have no problems with the 60s.
Generally I use the 42s because I remember reading somewhere that the blackface ADATs couldn't deal with anything longer. I never know what's going to happen to a tape after it leaves the studio with a client, so I still tend to use the 42's just in case.

I never had a problem with them, but always tried to use 45's out of principle. Made me feel safer.
