Bunker Samples make awesome instruments – there’s some strangely cool stuff in that bunker.” 

Simon Franglen, Composer

What happens when you bend the rules?


The mission of Bunker Samples is simple: to create the highest quality, innovative virtual instruments, in order to inspire composers and musicians around the world. The focus is not always on re-creating real instruments in the virtual domain, but rather to explore the power of sampling to create virtual instruments that bend the rules. This is how Bunker Strings was borne: free from the constrains of traditional sampling “realism”, Bunker Strings creates dynamics and texture density changes by seamlessly changing the ensemble size on the fly.
