A carnivorous high-gain classic
with gorgeous clean tones.

Introduced in 1994, the VH4 amplifier was Diezel's maiden voyage — a 100-watt beast that dropped jaws with articulate cleans, dynamic distortion, and frothy high-gain tones. Still a modern tone giant 25 years after its release, the Diezel VH4 is ubiquitous in heavy rock and metal productions, used by Tool, Metallica, and tons more.

Developed by Brainworx, and officially endorsed by legendary amp builder Peter Diezel, the Diezel VH4 plug-in masterfully emulates this four KT77-equipped 100-watt beast, for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

Now You Can:

Use your UA Interface to track through the Diezel VH4 — with near-zero 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 insane high-gain tones, dynamic distorted textures, and pristine cleans, with Diezel's original state-of-the art tone machine

Four Channels, Tons of Tones

Featuring Clean, Crunch, Mega, and Lead channels, the Diezel VH4 plug-in faithfully captures the original amp's glorious sparkling clean tones, simmering medium-gain sounds, and absolutely searing lead textures. No matter what guitar you plug in, the Diezel VH4 plug-in gives you all the tonal touchstones you need to record dynamic, modern guitar sounds.

Diezel FX Rack

The Diezel VH4 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 VH4 plug-in 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.

Most versatile amp plugin UAD offers

Basically this amp does it all - the sound possibilities are enormous but I would love it when UAD adds an own DSP based IR-Loader with custom sound for even more variety for example with mixed speaker setups like a V30 + Creamback.
You can still just use a third party IR-Loader and run the signal of the amp directly into the IR Plugin without UADs DSP power though. 5 Stars

Diezel VH4

Great sounding plugin and I'm not always a fan of virtual amps but I'm really enjoying this one. Definitely worth the price especially for those of us who can't afford the ridiculous price of the real thing.

Bout time.

It has taken universal audio about 10 or 15 years to finally come out with a plug-in that I approve of when it comes to metal.

Amazing girth

I own the original. It is so on point. This effect is amazing. Experimenting on everything with it. I like the different channels like the real one. It’s and effect that anybody can use. If you want to get crazy on some Bgv’s or just do your thing with the guitar. This is it...

I like these Diezel Amp Sims....

I like most all the the PA amp sims... I really like these Diezel amp sims... and with DAW automation the ability to simply dial in channel changes is just tremendous.

Exactly what i have been looking for!

If you need to create dark metal tracks, special with bariton guitar which hits your face, this is the most useful guitar plug for (not only...!) new and dark metal i´ve ever used.
Dark, warm, rich and heavy tone. From channel 1 - 4 increasing in intensity. Wonderful! Thank you UA !
