Generation Studio

Interviewee Dean Wilson Contact

Dean Wilson’s Generation Studio is equipped to handle a diverse range of commercial recordings…

MusicTech Tell us about the gear in Generation Studio?

Dean The studio is equipped with a Soundcraft Ghost LE 32, Genex AD/DA converters, Dynaudio MkII monitors, Twin-Finity mic pres, Lexicon MPX550, ART ProVLA II compressors and a TC-Helicon vocal processor. These are my core essentials for recording. We also have a great selection of microphones in the studio, from Sontronics, Shure, RØDE, and Sennheiser, as well as Marshall and Fender guitar amps for our clients to use.

MT Which DAW do you use?

D I use Cubase in the studio, but do still use Pro Tools on a mobile recording rig. I find using Cubase so effortless and easy to record in, from routing outputs to MIDI editing. Some of the shortcuts are just so useful when it comes to editing and adding FX to audio files within a track. I’d never really used Cubase until a few years ago, when I was working at another studio before setting up Generation Studio with Geoff, and since then, it’s been my main choice of DAW.
