Isn't this the plugin that was announced as free a few days ago from a weird website and that almost nobody managed to get for free (when I tried they asked me to pay $29) before the website closed for good ?

It looks dubious.

Of what I can understand, the plug-in sets the reverb settings according to the instrument types being played.
For anyone knowing what they're doing when using a basic reverb, this doesn't seem valuable, in my opinion.
This is what they refer to as artificial intelligence but the plug-in doesn't seem to adapt to the mix in real time. If that's what you want, I would suggest using reverb side-chaining.
In other words, it doesn't seem like it's worth the price they're asking for. And, anyway, you will always have more flexibility by defining your own sound rather than by letting a plug-in decide on that for you, in my opinion.
Cheers.

The website doesn't seem like it's closed. It is still accessible, of what I can see.

Well it closed, then reopened.

I wouldn't even that call AI :) Plugins like TEOTE or Soothe are adpting to mix in the real time and it's still just mathematic algorithms, not AI :)

AI is the new catchphrase like retro or vintage. The only difference is that developer doesn't need to put retro looking GUI on basic EQ to deceive customers.

With AI catchphrase it's easy to deceive people who have no knowledge even on basic programming. Anything automated can be called AI today.
Beware! The software discussed in this topic has unacceptable aliasing at -386dBTP but it can be fixed by changing the sample rate to 12Bit

I think this is a perfect example of how not to be successful as a plugin developer.

I'm one of those who managed to get it for free. I haven't actually noticed any "AI" in the plugin. It looks and sounds just like a basic reverb.

I wouldn't call it AI either. In fact, I spent like five minutes trying to think what an example of an AI plug-in could be and I still have no idea. It would be useless CPU resources, anyway, LOL.
