AudioThing has announced an update to the Frostbite 2 spectral freezing audio plugin featuring a ring modulator and feedback module.

Version 2.2 includes a new granular freeze mode, macOS Big Sur support, and more.

With the four freezing modes (spectral, reverb, convolution, granular), you can transform any sound into ambient textures, soundscapes, or just frozen reverbs. Frostbite can also be used for extreme sonic experiments by entirely mangling any source with extreme modulations.

The Signal Flow is flexible, you can rearrange the modules with a simple drag-and-drop, and selects between the two modes: serial and parallel. With the internal LFO you can modulate most of the parameters on each module, creating evolving eerie soundscapes.

  • Added: macOS 11 Big Sur support (Universal Binary 2 Binary).
