I tried to download it but it wants a donation first. Tried to download it at GitHub and it redirects to the blackhole website where it requires a donation to get the download link. It is NOT absolutely free.

Works as expected and doesn't require a kernel extension. (.kext) Its a HAL audio plug-in.
