Hi there,

I recently acquired a used Nord Rack that had apparently been cannibalized for parts. There are several buttons missing as well as the PCMCIA slot. I know that according to Clavia, you can get parts or repair from wherever you bought the Clavia product. There is a music store near me that sells Clavia instruments, through which I have had a Micro Modular repaired under warranty.

My questions are:

1) Does anybody know roughly what it will cost for 8 buttons?
2) Will the store be able to simply order the parts themselves, or do I have to send the Rack in and pay for professional service?
3) How is the PCMCIA slot connected to the main board? Is it for example a socketed ribbon cable or is a replacement PCMCIA slot more difficult to install?

I appreciate any and all advice. This forum has served me well in the past!

Thanks!

I hope you didn't pay too much

Not that much... Clavia still uses the parts in their synths.

Only the store can tell.

The card slot is on the expansion board (4 to 12 Voices), which is out of production and rather hard to get... I use an Editor as a tool to store patches at the hard disk of the computer. See http://nm-archives.electro-music.com/020_NordLead2/023_Miscellaneous/NordGenerator_Editor/
Mostly a Rack is only used in the studio, so...
