What is a Synth Programmer?
A synth programmer works with compsoers and songwriters to help program musical sound modules (including synthesizers, samplers, and other sound generating modules) to create unique, high-quality sounds.

Synth programmers are usually experts at the sound modules or samplers they work with, and are very famliar with programming the modules and creating sounds that are usable by composers and songwriters.

Synth programmers may also offer consulting services in the area of studio setup, audio equipment purchase and management, and may perform "field sampling" - that is, sampling or recording sounds out in the real world, bringing those samples back to the studio, and editing and shaping those sounds to create usable sounds for use in film and television work.
