Hirsch is widely credited with being the impetus behind the vintage gear
movement in the recording industry that continues today. He began his
career in Berlin in the late 70's as a studio
musician and was Lenny Kravitz’s engineer and musical partner for 25
years. In addition to recording Lenny's hits (It Ain't Over, Are You
Gonna Go My Way, Again, American Woman, Let Love Rule, Always On The
Run, Lady, I'll Be Waiting, ...) Henry has also recorded
four number one albums in Japan, Vanessa Paradis' number one album in
France and Madonna's number one single "Justify My Love". Henry's
credits also include Michael Jackson, Joan Osborne and Mick Jagger.
Henry purchased a 19th century church in the Hudson Valley in upstate
New York and turned it into his new Waterfront Studios outfitted with
his vintage Helios console and Ampex MM1000 tape
recorder which were both used to record this sample library.
