Re: D1 Questions

 At SMA we use evaporative humidifiers in front of every rack that has a D1 machine installed in it, and we 
Never and I mean NEVER record on blank tape. Every piece of D1 stock, 
and we use Sony A stock exclusively is made into a basic before use. 
We find that this practice reduces error rates by several orders of 
magnitude. We also will reject any piece of stock that has error 
rates above 3 as viewed on a 2100. Be very picky when it comes to 
stock and be aware of error rates. Your clients will thank you for
