    Also called a program, a patch refers to a single programmed sound on a synthesizer or sampler that can be recalled by a program change command. Also refers to a temporary fix for software that is publicly released, in which a bug was not previously found during the testing cycle. The patch is usually incorporated in the next software revision.

    As a verb, patch means to connect two devices in order to pass signal from one to the other.
