Yep it's confirmed, they didn't erased his presets, this is from another sale:
Nord Rack 2
'This 16-voice Nord Rack 2 was sold in the last auction untested and is now up for sale again, tested and actually at VEMIA. It comes from the late Pete Namlook's studio, and we believe it still has a load of his programs in it
- some very smooth and creamy, and some pretty gnarly. A very powerful machine, with a huge amount of control / morph / modulate possibilities. The manual is available at www.nordkeyboards.com
- and although some things are intuitive, there is such a lot in this machine that the manual is pretty useful - actually essential to get the most out of it! It has its rack ears, but is missing the screws. In excellent cosmetic condition.'
