My name is Steve Bunting and I am a professional freelance FOH / Monitors live sound engineer, systems technician and audio consultant specialising in live music mixing. I am based in Stockholm, Sweden but maintain close ties to the UK and travel worldwide.
I offer a professional approach to all live sound applications, with considerable experience drawn from a diverse range of events including bands, clubs, tours, functions, conferences, theatre, orchestral, comedy, seminars and festivals in a variety of venues. I have hands-on experience of an extensive range of professional audio equipment and a thorough grounding in audio engineering theory but come from a musical background so smoothly combine the technical and creative aspects of audio production. My extensive contacts in the industry permit me to select the highest quality and best-suited crew and suppliers for a particular event. Above all, I take great pride in my work and have a great deal of enthusiasm for my job.
I hope that this website will give you an idea of my experience and capabilities. Please feel free to learn more about what I can do for you by taking a look around.
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and please feel free to contact me.

I looked after stage sound for the Rewind Festival's house band in Scotland and Cheshire again this year. Among the artists I mixed monitors for were Jimmy Somerville, Belinda Carlisle, Heather Small, The Selecter, Nik Kershaw, Kim Wilde, ABC, Bananarama, Chesney Hawkes, Hue & Cry and many many more. I used a Yamaha PM5D-RH, with a combination of Sennheiser 2000 series IEM and Martin Audio LE1500 wedges. The Rewind All-Star band is a busy and complex show which utilizes all 48 inputs (plus 2 stereo inputs) and all 24 mixes.
British Summer Time at Hyde Park
Tuesday 23rd June 2015
BST Hyde Park is over for another year, this time featuring world class artists including The Who, Blur, Taylor Swift and Kylie among others. I looked after monitors again, Capital Sound supplying a flip-flop control system with 2 x PM5Ds at monitors, 2 x Profiles at FOH, 2 x 48-way line systems in addition to Martin Audio LE1500 wedges and microphones as dictated by visiting engineers. This dual-setup allowed engineers to have a maximum amount of time on their board and a line-check to happen behind the drape before the band are rolled onto the stage. Yet again, a large Martin Audio MLA system was deployed which allowed a level of over 100dBA at FOH while maintaining strict off-site limits.Martin Audio | Capital and MLA make best ever BST at Hyde Park
Il Divo European Tour 2014
Wednesday 15th October 2014
I am currently on tour with Il Divo, a multinational operatic pop group on their 2 month long autumn tour 'A Musical Affair'. Playing mostly arenas, the show has so far been through Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and is heading back to the UK in a few days time before finishing in Lisbon. I am looking after a Capital Sound supplied monitor system comprised of a DiGiCo SD10, 8x Sennheiser G3 IEMs, Martin Audio LE1500 wedges and W8LM flown side-fills.
