u-he releases Uhbik


u-he has released Uhbik, a bundle of high quality audio effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

u-he Uhbik

Having survived the final stage of beta testing, these eight effects have seen light of public in conjunction with an irresistable discount offer. Don’t miss out on it if you dare!

Uhbik features

  • Flanger — So you think you don’t need another flanger? Try this one anyway. Uhbik-F does both tape-style and stomp-style flanging in extraordinary quality. Chorus on top of that.
  • Phaser — 14, 28 or 42 stages.
  • Tremolo & Pan — If you think that tremolo is only a wobbly gain, Uhbik-T twists your audio around like nuts. Surround trance gate effects included.
  • Frequency Shifter — Not just renowned for cruelty but also applicable in small & smooth doses.
  • Ambience & Reverb — Modelled with the best in mind. This ambience processor provides the depth and the glue for your tracks.
  • Multitap Delay — 5-tap tape-style delay with a clue or two.
  • Equalizer — Transparent. Powerful. Flexible. Fast.
  • Runciter – an evil filter — digital filter uhbik. Enough with emulations! Beyond!

Uhbik is available as a bundle, including future Uhbiks as a free update, for the introductory price of $149 USD (regular price $199 USD). A demo version can be downloaded from the Uhbik website.

The bundle thing is a definite turnoff. There is plenty of pro sounding, freeware plugins available that makes these sorts of bundles not particularly attractive.

Why pay for what you don’t need?


Thanks Ronnie! I did download the demo, but haven’t installed them yet; so I don’t know how they sound. I don’t own a Mac, so that’s no issue for me. Don’t forget, a lot of commercial developers also release freeware, so it’s not simply the Synth Edit and SynthMaker plugins that’s free. Also, Some developers also release products that were once payware and may have ceased development or updates. The freeware Sanford plugin series,for example… have a pro hardware quality sound to them IMO, and they’re not made with SE or SM. I’ve tried plenty of non freeware by various… Read more »

While I don’t disagree with you necessarily, Beatman, keep in mind that they are written by Urs Heckmann of Zebra2 fame, so you know they are absolutely the top in DSP. And when you consider that most professional effect bundles are well over $500, I think Urs is hitting his market just about right. If you were going to pick up the roughly same equivalent of plugins from AudioDamage, one of the more sensible priced plugin developers out there, it would be a little more than these full cost. I do agree, when I look at one and say, meh,… Read more »


Yes, I agree they’re reasonably priced considering the market, as compared to some high end developers that charge $1500 or more for a single plugin. You’re essentially paying for a license to use as compared to hardware which requires far more resources than software does. It’s interesting how some of these plugins exceeds the cost of some high end, pro hardware equipment! Don’t forget that you’re also paying for copy protection schemes and may have to make additional purchases for dongles or iloks. The cost of incorporating this protection is passed on to the user, so it’s not just a… Read more »

Again, don’t disagree with you. Just keep in mind that Urs is for all intents and purposes a one-man shop. He uses his own serial-number based copy-protection.

I like your last point. I think that’s something a lot us plugin hounds forget as we chase our perfect compressors.
