Music Programmers use electronic devices, such as sequencers or Digital Audio Workstations (DAW's), to generate sounds of musical instruments. Programming is used in nearly all forms of music before the recording stage.

After receiving this project file, the recording of the singer, guitar player or the drummer is done inside a music studio.
