It is, and I saw your post. Unfortunately, I don't know of a good repair place. Hopefully someone will 'cos I have a dead Matrix-1000 that I'd like to resurrect.
I did have luck getting some stuff fixed a few years back at "Musictek" in North Hollywood (or somewhere around there). You might try some of the synth enthusiast usenet groups and see what they say.
I've seen maybe 6 or 7 years ago advertising in Electronic Musician a place somewhere in Texas where they could make great Midi Mod on minimoog and for JP-8 too.
So maybe peoples in US should know more about it than I (in Québec)
If I were looking for leads to a repair facility, two of the first places I would call if I didn't already have the name of one (which, being a tech myself, I don't use them) would be Caruso music, at carusomusic.com, and Sweetwater sound, at sweetwater.com - Caruso deals in used equipment, and I'm thinking they probably get a fair amount of stuff on trade that needs repair. Sweetwater started as a recording studio, and most likely would know of some reputable repair facilities. I would go to their websites and follow links to contacts, also see if either place does repairs themselves. Beyond that, try Eddie Cilletti's site,
Eddie has a lot of links on his site, and is a well-known tech on the east coast.
Hope some of these ideas work for you... Steve
Thanks for the informaton, I'll post you a response from what I have fro information.
I've had a response from Sweetwater with Robert Dorion, a very kind guy. He phoned me! (a long distance from Calif. to Québec.)
