Somebody who wrongfully uses the title "sound engineer" for their job when they really belong to a group called "sound technicians".

Their job is to facilitate the production of sound during recordings and events using technology that an actual engineer has designed.
"So what do you do you for a living?"
"I'm a sound engineer"

"Ah so you must be quite good with electronics then"
"No, I just sit in a recording studio and press buttons"

"Ah right, I think you mean you are a sound technician"
