We characterize, in terms of the Beurling-Malliavin density, the discrete spectra ΛR\Lambda\subset\mathbb R for which a generator exists, that is a function φL1(R)\varphi\in L^1(\mathbb R) such that its Λ\Lambda-translates φ(xλ),λΛ\varphi(x-\lambda), \lambda\in\Lambda, span L1(R)L^1(\mathbb R). It is shown that these spectra coincide with the uniqueness sets for certain analytic classes. We also present examples of discrete spectra ΛR\Lambda\subset\mathbb R which do not admit a single generator while they admit a pair of generators.
