DENSITY specifies whether the tape is to be written at high or low density. The tape speeds corresponding to each density can be specified in the setup file using TPSPEEDH SP:TPSPEEDH and TPSPEEDLSP:TPSPEEDL or, better, they can be allowed to default.

For S2 tapes, density ``H'' refers to SLP and ``L'' to LP.
