Rick Camp is one of those guys who never rests. This studio and live engineer has worked with the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Madonna, Erykah Badu, Burt Bacharach and Destiny's Child. Recently, he's done solo tours with DC's Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé Knowles. During a brief couple of weeks off the road, Camp was working in his Reel Tyme Recording facility in Southern California mixing the upcoming DVD release of Knowles' live show at London's Wembley Arena.

What's in Beyoncé's vocal chain?

I have an Avalon 737 preamp/EQ/compressor patched into the inserts on an ATI Paragon II console with a Lexicon 480L for reverb — all fed by a custom Sennheiser wireless with an e935 cardioid capsule.

Do you have a “must have” piece of gear on the road?

There are two things that really work for me. One is the Avalon 737, and the other is the Clair iO, which lets me voice the system with a wireless tablet from anywhere in the room.

Were there any challenges in working with Beyoncé?

Not at all. This girl is amazing — she can run across a 60-foot stage singing and never miss a note.

Do you have any favorite venues?

The Yokohama Arena in Japan sounds just like a studio — absolutely amazing. They don't all sound like that, so I sure remember the ones that do.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

It doesn't happen very often, but sometimes it's nice to just sit back and stare at some TV or see a movie on a real screen rather than just watching one on my computer in the tour bus.
