Since VST and DX have conquered the scene it has been almost forgotten that Cool Edit was in fact the first windows program that provided a powerful and open proprietary plugin format. There are still a number of gems to discover among the third party plugins. Some of them are even free. 

Please Note: Some of the links on this page are broken. If You happen to know an alternative (legal!) download location for one of the the missing pieces then please let me know. Thanks!
