Can I use 2 tape drives at the same time with amanda

I wish to have
job 1 backing up server 1, server 2, server 3 on tapedrive 1

job2 backing up server 4 on tape drive 2

I have 2 quantum HHlto4 using 2 lsi sas 3442E.r adapters and centos 7 "sees" the 2 devs as st0 and st1

I am able to do a simple tar to tape with each

can I make this work with amanda?

Amanda supports parallel writes to tape, meaning that the Amanda server can send multiple DLEs to different volumes at the same time.
