Clavia Nord Lead 2 – Version 1.06 Firmware Update Upgrade Eprom for Rack Keyboard


Nord Lead 2 – Version 1.06 Update for Keyboard / Rack version.

This is firmware revision 1.06 and is the latest official released operation system by Clavia Digital Musical Instruments. This operation system update/upgrade requires one eprom chip as revealed in the eBay article`s photos and the chip will be labeled to help you locate the correct chip socket. For more info, please check below.

Your current OS version is displayed shortly after booting.

·      Fixed: Sometimes the DSP’s would not start in sync, which would result in some voices appearing at the wrong output. Now they will start together and all voices will appear at the correct output.


·      Fixed: No bank select would be sent when changing program or performance between banks. Now bank change is always sent, for program change and performance change. Bank select is also received.


·      Fixed: Sound on SRAM card 1.1 to 1.11 would overwrite performance 1.F4 to 1.F6 and vice versa. Now 1.1 to 1.11 have their own memory space on the card. Version 1.06 will read old cards, but 1.1 to 1.11 will be garbage. If the sounds 1.1 to 1.11 are fine on the old card, one can save them in internal memory with the old version (<1.06) and then change to 1.06, and then copy them back to 1.1 to 1.11.


·      Fixed: When the keyboard was in octave shift mode (4 out of 5 LED’s lit), the MIDI channel could suddenly change. Now it will always be the channel chosen for the active slot.


  • The eprom will be verified and properly packaged in anti-static material to ensure quality.
  • Update is compatible with both rack and keyboard version.
