The most famous record producer of all time is most probably George Martin, made famous for his work with the Beatles.

Martin worked on all of the Beatles original albums and has produced 30 UK number one singles and 23 number ones in the US.

The roles of a record producer include production of the music; song selection; managing the recording sessions; mixing, and mastering the record.

George Martin helped mold the raw talent of the Beatles into a worldwide phenomenon - and, in fact, he arranged the majority of the Beatles' orchestral arrangements. It was George Martin's idea to use a string quartet on "Yesterday", despite Paul McCartney's initial reluctance to do so.

Other Famous Music Producers.

  • The Neptunes: Composed of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, the duo were responisble for almost every hit in the early 21st century.
  • Butch Vig: Vig is famous for his work as both drummer in the band Garbage and the production of groundbreaking alternative rock albums. He produced Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Smashing Pumpkin's "Siamese Dream". 
  • Dr. Dre: Famous for his work producing NWA, Dr. Dre went on to produce almost every popular rap artist. His production techniques are still heavily influential in the genre today.   
  • Sam Phillips: One of the most influential producers of all time, Philiips is responisble for discovering some of rock'n'roll's most successful artists, such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and B.B. King.
  • Phil Spector: Pioneer of the "wall of sound" technique, Spector had a highly successful career which included producing John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War is Over)".

Actually, Rick Rubin is the only one who comes to my mind. I believe that he's one of the biggest influencers in the music industry nowadays, and his name can make any artist more popular. Too bad not everyone can afford to work with him since there are so many beginning artists who could blow up with his influence. But I'm glad that there are platforms like CDBaby that help musicians profit, and I believe they help them become bigger in this industry.

Well in my opinion it's got to be Phil Spector or David Foster. Two of the best that were ever in the business.
