    Hello my name is Walter Clyde Orange, one of the founding members of group The Commodores. I've known Rick Camp for about 30 years and he's engineered for me in my studio in Los Angeles, CA and after moving to Coral Springs, FL, he designed my home studio. Everything from designing the vocal booth to installing the rack units, he has also helped me with several high-end recording consoles that I myself did not know how to use, which highlights his versatility in the world of audio production. Throughout his career, Rick has served as sound engineer for The Commodores on a number of our tours.
