So, after years and years of living with my MD without a +Drive, I decided to send my UW-MkII Machinedrum in to Elektron to have it fitted with a +Drive. I got a reply now, saying the following:
Sadly it seems like your CPU pcb have some trouble to connect to the +Drive. It’s processor related and we cant rescue your card i’m afraid. One solution is to replace the CPU as well, with the result that all your saved stuff will be gone. The other is to keep it as it is, without upgrade, as it works fine.
I don’t mind losing the saved stuff - I made a full backup right before sending the unit in (plus an extra paranoia backup for maximum safety). But what do you make of the news about the CPU? I am getting somewhat worried, and would like to hear what the good folks on the board have to say. I really don’t want the unit back and then discover that there are more errors or faults than before.
What would you do?
