Operator

A term used in FM synthesis to refer to the software equivalent of common parts of other synthesizers such as oscillator, envelope generator, envelope amplifier, etc. The operators are combined in different ways to create different algorithms for producing fundamentally different types of sounds.

An operator is also the person who runs a piece of equipment, such as a tape (machine) operator or Pro Tools operator.
