Lots of respect to Dirk and company for trying to deal with this without accepting donations. Best wishes from me too (and probably some purchases)!

Did not look into that, Brain works are the developer's
PA really is a collective of a diverse group of developers, selling their plugins under one “brand umbrella” moniker. The word “alliance” says it all I guess. And yes, Brainworx (mister Dirk Ulrich) is the developer that has been hit hard by the floods in Germany. He lost a lot of his hardware / gear, some of which was very valuable and rare. I think some of the current development progress has been (forever?) lost too, because the hardware they were modelling is no longer working, but I am not totally sure about that.

That's a really good point. They usually model measuring specific hardware (components). Aging, and the unit itself matters a lot since there are variances.
I have seen the racks collected somewhere in their photo, hopefully there were high enough not to get water damage. :(

From the blog:

“The iconic BX main studio was completely destroyed in this disaster, and only a few pieces of outboard gear have survived the flooding. The water was standing in the whole building about 2ft (60cm) deep for many hours. The iconic NEVE VXS 72 console (one of only 9 ever made) was damaged badly and had to be sold and removed from the location asap because of mold formation that started in the building after only 48 hours. The big PMC MB2-XBD main speakers were destroyed as well as a rare power amp by German legend Dieter Burmester (RIP). A lot of the racked 19” gear was damaged. Only equipment that was sitting on desks or in the higher slots of the 19” racks survived.”

He didn’t have insurance coverage for floods, since his studio wasn’t located in a “known flood risk area”. Really sad story… That NEVE console is the one they modelled in the “console N” plugin that’s on sale today for $29.99.

Only Brainworx ones will actually help bx. They’re the one developer who incurred a lot of flood damage, not PA as a whole
Well, on the blog page it says "Some of BX's partners have already reached out announced they would support this campaign as well, so stay tuned please."

So if I can help by finally buying one of the Fuchs amps, I'm in.

Check. In that case I’m sure they’ll announce other support sales including plugins by other developers, in which case @sostenuto and you may be able to purchase the ones you fancy while being able to help bx in the process.

Probably never was so happy to live uphill before. Peoples houses around my place got flooded and where I live it wasn't even as bad as in other parts of Germany... no one was prepared.

Good luck to BX. These pictures make me sad.
