Frostbite is a multi-effect plugin featuring Ring Modulator, Feedback, and Freeze modules. It’s aimed at ambience and cinematic music, but can also be used for extreme sonic experiments. The Signal Flow is flexible with 6 different combinations.
The Ring Modulator multiplies your input signal with a Sine wave (with frequency up to 4kHz). You can also reduce the high-end with the Low Pass filter.
The Feedback module features a delay function (up to 200 samples) which can be modulated by an LFO.
The Freeze module features a Freeze effect that can hold the input up to 25 seconds. The Fade Out and High Pass controls can additionally shape the behaviour of the frozen sound.

Frostbite was designed with ambient and cinematic music in mind, but it’s actually far more versatile than that. Affordable, fun, and offering a distinctive and atmospheric sound, you won’t regret chilling out with Frostbite.

4/5 – Computer Music Magazine review on Music Radar: link
Frostbite is a great sound design tool optimized for experimental atmospheres and bizarre ambient soundscapes. It can be used in a variety of ways, and if you take the time to really get to know it, you’ll open up a whole new world of possibilities you might not have explored otherwise.

8.4/10 – Bedroom Producers Blog review: link
The flexible routing system behind Frostbite offers you a big playroom for experiments and unusual sounds. I was able to create wonderful soundscapes using only a single Synthesizer lead sound.

What’s great about Frostbite is the range of sounds you can get from it but also the differences you get with different input sounds.
