Nomad Sound Adds New NEXO STM, Yamaha CLs to Arsenal

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Nomad Sound of Austin, Texas recently purchased a new NEXO STM line array and Yamaha CL1, 3, 5 digital audio consoles to complement their rental arsenal. Since 2005, Nomad Sound has been supplying regional music festivals and several touring clients with world-class equipment along with very experienced technicians. The sound company recently had the opportunity to support a Willie Nelson show followed by Psychfest, both in Austin, multiple festivals, and South by Southwest, putting the STM to successful, but rigorous tests.

Regarding the purchase of the STM, Damon Lange, principal owner of Nomad said “we had realized a 4-way system was the right move to make, having grown our NEXO GEO S12 rig up to 48 boxes, we were looking at our options. When I heard there was an STM demo scheduled at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio, I went down with Joel Hume, one of our lead engineers, and we spent two days listening and examining the rig. Once I heard the system and the clarity at 350+ feet as well as examined the rigging and listened to a small ground stacked rig, it was simply a matter of figuring out what configuration to start with.” Lange decided on a 48-box rig with 18 M46′s, 18 B112′s, and 12 S118′s, powered by four NUAR amp racks.

Nomad also added three Yamaha CL digital consoles to its inventory as well. “We started with a CL3 and a single Rio 32 input/output box and then added a CL5 and CL1. We have four Rio’s at this point, and the consoles are cased using Rock Hard captive leveling rigs. They’ve made a really slick console case that a single person can “table” the desk with one hand! We’ve had no issues with rider acceptability of the CL consoles, and anyone familiar with M7CL or PM5D can pretty much jump right in on the CL. The Premium Rack plug-ins are really amazing, and while we all have our favorites, mine is the Dynamic EQ, which feels pretty familiar if you’ve ever used the BSS901 to solve problems.”

For Willie Nelson’s show and Psychfest, the rig consisted of a 9 pair-per-side STM boxes over 12 STM subs on the main stage of both shows and 6 per-side S1210 rigs on the additional B and C Stages for the festival. These shows were followed up with two back-to-back gigs where the STM was ground-stacked three high over four subs for a festival at the historic Pearl Brewery in San Antonio as part of the Echale Concert Series, where Nomad also supplied a Yamaha CL5 at FOH and CL1 for monitors. The next day, Nomad used the STM as part of a three-stage festival in Austin for Fiesta Gardens with three NEXO rigs: STM ground stack on main stage and GEO S12 rigs on B and C stages. Again, the sound company brought in Yamaha CL consoles for FOH and monitors on B and C stages. For South By Southwest, Nomad added a NEXO S118 sub package.

“Nothing but positive feedback all around, Lange says. Everyone was really pleased as to how easy it was to get their mix right where they wanted it. One engineer mentioned how refreshing it was not to have to worry about the system at all. This was our game plan from the get-go; to provide a system where guest engineers can show up, mix, and leave happy without ever having to worry about system tuning/ tweaks. The festival scenarios with flown and ground-stacked systems, plus GEO S12 rigs complimenting as fills and side-stage rigs, really showcase how versatile and flexible the new NEXO STM rig is.”
