Vicious modern distortion combined with huge clean tones.

Diezel's Herbert amplifier is a 180-watt pulverizer designed to deliver the meanest of means, the cleanest of cleans — and more. Still considered state-of-the art, nearly 20 years after its release, the Diezel Herbert is a mainstay in heavy rock, and extreme metal productions — anywhere bold, powerful electric guitar tones are required.

Developed by Brainworx, and officially endorsed by legendary amp builder Peter Diezel, the Diezel Herbert plug-in masterfully emulates this six KT77-equipped sledgehammer, for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

Now You Can:

Use your UA Interface to track through the Diezel Herbert — with no latency

Audition 120 separate high-end recording chains, featuring multiple cabinets and classic microphones

Shape tones further with FX Rack’s Vintage Delay, noise gate, high/low filters, and more

Easily dial in god-like clean tones, manicured medium gain, and all out assault with a state-of-the art tone machine

Pristine to Punishing

Pristine to Punishing

A contemporary tube amp if there ever was one, the Diezel Herbert plug-in thoroughly captures the hardware's cutting-edge circuit. From impossible-to-distort piano-like clean tones to searing early-VH textures, to absolutely groundbreaking extreme high-gain tones, the Diezel Herbert plug-in is the one-stop-shop for tracking bold, modern guitar tracks.

Diezel FX Rack

Diezel FX Rack

The Diezel Herbert plug-in offers additional control over your tones via the Brainworx FX Rack. It features a Noise Gate, switchable high and low-pass filters, and a Power Soak circuit that allows you to dial in as much overdrive as you want, without having to crank the output gain.

The Diezel Herbert also includes 120 impulse response Recording Chains that were perfectly captured from several boutique cabinets and recorded through Brainworx's vintage Neve console with an array of high-end and vintage microphones and outboard gear, giving you "record ready" tones, instantly.

Great Versatility

I used to own the hardware of this. Brilliant for producing untold amounts of power and tone at the same time. This UAD version, I have to say, hits the spot! Versatility is a must when recording guitars in a studio, and this offers it. Really surprised, really happy. Highly recommend it!

That Pluggin don´t work with UAD-2 Satelite. DON´T BUY THIS AMP

Don´t buy this Amplifier. Ask the Support how to bring this Amp to the List to Autorize the Amp. No Answaer from the Support. I pay 149 Euro for nothing. I can´t use the Diezel Herbert Amp. I ´m so sad about this.

LEGIT!!!

They certainly nailed it with this one. Sounds and feels like the actual hardware. Aside from saving a few $K's, no need for an attenuator or concern with loud volumes (although Diezel gives you great tone at very low volume), anyhow, you get the point...just plug in and enjoy crystal cleans to as roaring as you want it, using closed, in-ear or studio monitors. Great Job!

From a Diezel owner

This is an awesome representation of a Diezel amp. Love the fact that I can just pipe my guitar through this app for quick and easy guitar recording with such great tones!

METAL!

me gusta mas que el fortin nameless ya que tiene bastante cuerpo sin sonar fangoso y tiene unos agudos que cortan en la mezcla sin ser molestos.

Best Of The Greats ON The UAD Platform

This is IMO the best amp they have ,Versatile and bold, Easy to get a great sound no matter what you're going for. (except for a great "Chicken Pickin' Sound) Haven't found it yet But you can get lost in this thing so actually haven't tried yet.
BTW shout out to Brainworx!

Bulldozer guitar tones.

The Herbert is powerful and really satisfying for lots of different styles of music but excels in punishingly brutal tones of bulldozer like grandeur. In the box keeps sounding better and better. Thanks UAD for the great work! Keep it up.

Its. A. Herbert. Nuff said.

Can make totally crushing guitar tones with this thing, and thank goodness it doesn't involve a 150 watt amp sitting in the room with you. Way easier to lift the Arrow to get this sound, so I'm giddy with the types of sounds I can get. I can go from hair to prog to pumpkins to even a really nice clean which is not exactly what you think of with this tpe of amp.

Great Touch-Sensitive & Versatile Plugin!

I own most of the UAD guitar plugins (and many plugins from most other developers) and have to agree with my colleague's assessment -- this may be the single best (reasonably priced) guitar plugin available today. I find UAD plugins to be the most expressive and touch sensitive, and the Herbert raises the bar beyond the high standard set on the Fuchs plugins. Most astonishing is how versatile this plugin is -- I'll be recording a pretty diverse range of material today from jazz to rock to funk to country and I'm going to try using the Herbert for all of it. Sure a lot easier to move and mic than stacks of Fenders, Engles and Marshalls ... Thanks UA!

The best so far...

This is the best amp plugin I've tried so far... I really like the range of clean to wildly over-driven.

One of the best

I have a ton of amp sims, IK, Bias, Brainworx (native), UAD, Overloud, Waves, etc. This is among my top 3 favorite, along with UAD Marshall Silver and Nembrini BST100. I can get great clean, crunchy classic rock, southern rock sounds, and full on metal. Responds great to picking dynamics.

Very usable plug in.

What impresses me most is how versatile this amp can be. From heavy crushing metal to beautiful clean tones. Cabinet/mic choices are great as well. Very usable plug in.
