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.

I've only just started to mess with this, but I already love it and can tell this is going to get a lot of use, especially in my sound design-focused sessions.
Even if the only trick it did was the "long reverb," it might be worth the asking price. Basically it just takes the most intense part of a reverb and holds it for a specified amount of time, up to 25 seconds. Very awesome. Obviously, one can use automation of reverb/volume to achieve somewhat similar effects, but this does it 1) much more easily and 2) in a much different sounding way. A way that freezes the sound and just repeats it, but with no audible looping artefacts. I used to spend a lot of time in an audio editor to get effects that I'm getting with this with just a few dial tweak.
It also has the ability to severely transform the input sound. The "bowed metal" preset makes everything sound like, well, bowed metal. Very cool effect with which to create some icy soundscapes. For real, if you're into any genre where you like to create a spacy / barren / cold soundscape, you want this plugin.
One idea for improvement: allow users to type in values, or at a minimum, allow for fine-grain tuning by holding SHIFT.Read more
