Programming is a form of music production and performance using electronic devices and computer software, such as sequencers and workstations or hardware synthesizers, sampler and sequencers, to generate sounds of musical instruments. Programming is used in most electronic music and hip hop music since the 1990s. It is also frequently used in "modern" pop and rock music from various regions of the world, and sometimes in jazz and contemporary classical music.

Programing is when you either make an sound (also known as a patch) from scratch/modifying one on a synthesizer/sampler, or using an sequencers to arrange songs or a part of a song.
