Metal Band DJ Control Equipment

My name is Steve Bunting and I am a professional freelance FOH / Monitors live sound engineer, RF / 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.

Kim Wilde NL / AU Tour

Kim Wilde NL / AU Tour
As her regular monitor mixer, this autumn I yet again joined Kim Wilde on tour in the Netherlands and Australia. While the backline and audio package could be trucked around Netherlands in a 7.5T truck, Australia provided a particular challenge as the itinerary required a lot of flying. Therefore, I cut down the SD8 at monitors to an SD11, utilising an iPad running TouchOSC to provide additional control. With FOH also using an SD11 and sharing a D-Rack, the system worked really well and meant we only had to rely on the venue for PA, stage cabling and mic stands. Everything else flew!

Rewind Festivals

Tuesday 23rd August 2016
For the past few years, I've mixed monitors for the house band at the Rewind festivals held in Perth, Cheshire and Henley-on-Thames, and this year was no exception. Taking in a roster of artists including Rick Astley, Holly Johnson, Midge Ure, Leo Sayer, Heather Small and many more, it comprises of 4 hour sets for the house band with just 5 minute changeovers, meaning organisation is key! This year I moved from a fully-loaded PM5D to a CL5 which provided me with more processing power, input and output channels, as well as virtual soundcheck capability with Dante networking. The show is 48 inputs (depending on artist requirements) and utilises 10 IEM mixes, 5 wedge mixes, side-fills and more. The CL5 gives me a little bit of breathing room for a few years!
