I agree with Paul.
This tape is based on the Agfa PEM 468 I sold in the US years ago. It was
widely used by many of the leading recording studios in the US. Any tape
will require bias and eq adjustments to perform well. A good tech should
use the bias graphs to optimize for your specific application.
All the best
