Pre-Sales question about dual LTO Tape

Hello Dear Veeam Tech or Users,

Currently we are running Veeam Backup & Replication 9 with a tape library Dell TL2000 library loader with 24 LTO-4 tape running fine with Veeam 9.
We would like to change our old hardware Dell TL2000 with a new Dell PowerVault 114X Tape Rack Enclosure with 2x LTO-7 Drive inside.

My question is about the repository:
Can we use the same repository with the both (2) tape LTO-7 (not at the same time but alternatively) ?
Exemple: Tape1 for the incremental week job and Tape2 for the full weekend job on the same Repository.

Is this could be a solution with Veeam and 2x Tape Drive LTO7 ?

Thank's for your help.

It's possible to use different tapes for incremental and full job cycles. Or you want software to select a drive based on the type of job cycle? Thanks.

Thank's for your response, v.Eremin, we just want to use 2 tapes linked to the same repository.
But if the software has the ability to select a drive based on the type of job cycle this could be very usefull. Is this possible ?
