SIM-GYIL is a plugin designed to simulate the African Gyil instrument.

A Gyil is a type of xylophone which uses dried gourds to act as resonators. An important component of the timbre is the buzzing sound produced by covering holes made in the gourds with thin membranes. The principle of membrane use is similar to a kazoo but the sound is different due to the percussive nature of the instrument.

The sound model can be adjusted to provide other similar instrument simulations as demonstrated by the included presets.

This seems like another win by Quilcom. The glassy sound of a chromatic drum that's always at home in comedic animations, with some unique parameters. I did not like the sound of the membrane and preferred the presets without it like the regular Marimba and Xylophone.
