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 freezed sound.

Very nice, although it could do with a lock on the limiter and volume controls to isolate them from patch changes and randomisations.

This is awesome. I've always had a weakness for "ice"-style sounds.. I will be picking this up as soon as I get home from the office! Keep up the great work, AT. Love your plugins!

To add gloss you mean?

In case, can it be compared to Shimmer by Valhalla ?

Shimmer is a completely different kettle of fish - pitch shifted feedback. Tends to need a lot of space, because it... creates a lot of space :hihi:

Though I'd imagine running shimmer through Frostbite would be enough to freeze your socks off. Just add some cold squarewave fifth pads... ahh... coldness heaven :love:

I have a problem with the Frostbite installer. I've unzipped it, but every time I run it, my computer just goes into an endless hourglass, I can't terminate the process, and my computer takes ages to shut down (like it's having to fight the process). Tried it three times so I think something might be wrong with the installer.

I'm sorry to hear you are having problems installing Frostbite. I assume you are on Windows, right? Which version? Also, where exactly does it hang? Right after you click on the installer or during the copying of the files?

Yeah probably the randomizer shouldn't change wet/dry and limiter. I'll add this to the todo list for an update.

Windows 7 64-bit. It hangs as soon as I click on the icon - nothing appears and no disk activity happens, just the endless hourglass. I made sure nothing else was running. Except perhaps my Antivirus program is messing it up. It's in silent/gaming mode, but next time I'll try turning it off completely.

I just (re)tested on Win 7 64-bit and the installer was fine. Might be the antivirus although that's the first time I hear of this problem with our installers.

There was a problem with the stereo processed sound in some of the demo (which ended up being mono) so we have updated all audio demos and the youtube video.

I don't understand what the Freeze module does, from the audio demo I’ve heard.

Is it holding up to 25 second of the incoming audio and we then can scrub into it? Or it is freezing the audio and it’s then looped non-stop, like a freeze guitar pedal?
