Let me do a quick correction here (including the thread title):
It's the "Brainworx" studio and office in Leverkusen, Germany that has been flooded, where sadly tech has been destroyed and needed to be sold/discarded. While technically correct that the "Plugin Alliance" was started by Brainworx, it is still a different entity and resides in the US.

I'm still sad to see the Neve VXS go... it was a rare build. Maybe it's still repairable. Else, it will live on in bx_console N.

OK :smile:

Very sad incident, but of course my heart is with all who lost their homes or worse.

Worst problem after the water was gone, was mold and smell.
This made them remove the desk as fast as possible. Seems there is still hope. They might replace transformers and faders, though.
As far I understood, the desk is being sold.

I'm using the BX Console N, sounds great. Available now on sale.
But for rock guitars, I use the 4000 G.
