Templates help you work faster and get into a creative mood quicker when you have an idea. That said, it is important to be careful not to fall into a pattern of only using the same sounds for all of your projects or tracks.
Sound design is the process of creating a new sound, or morphing a sound into something else altogether. You can use samplers, synthesizers, instruments, or any other sound-making or sound altering device.
A CV is one of the most important elements in your professional profile. Getting it right will take many revisions, a lot of research, and a bit of trial and error, but will pay off in separating a good candidate from a great one (you!) in the hiring process.
