* Music/RickRubin - his scaled down sound marked by minimal use of effects like reverb, trying to keep most of the instrumentation live and a focus on performance and precision. He's known for the sheer eclecticism of the bands he's worked with and his seemingly uncanny ability to bring out the best in the people he works with. His credits include: Music/BeastieBoys (''Licensed to Ill''), Music/RunDMC, Music/LLCoolJ (''Radio'' famously had the credit "reduced by Rick Rubin"), Music/JayZ, Music/{{Slayer}} (''Reign in Blood'', ''South of Heaven'', ''Seasons in the Abyss'' and more), Music/JohnnyCash (the ''American Recordings'' series), Music/RedHotChiliPeppers (all of their albums since ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik''), Music/{{Danzig}}, Music/{{Metallica}} (''Death Magnetic''), Music/SystemOfADown (all their albums), Music/{{ACDC}} (''Ballbreaker''), Neil Diamond (''12 Songs''), Music/JustinTimberlake and Music/{{Weezer}}. On a more negative note, he is also notorious for {{Loudness War}}ring his recent releases to an {{egregious}} extent.

* Patty Loveless has been produced by her husband, Emory Gordy Jr., for all but two albums. He and Tony Brown co-produced the first two, then Brown produced her third and fourth by himself, before Gordy returned permanently (with assistance from Justin Niebank on 2005's ''Dreaming My Dreams'') Gordy also plays bass guitar on most of her albums, and in her road band.

* Paul Worley (no relation to Darryl) also wears many hats. He started off with a meaty, guitar-heavy sound (unsurprisingly, he's also a session guitarist like Dann Huff) that wasn't ''too'' polished, and kept this into the late 1990s. By the early 2000s, he used ultra-slick pop sheen on Martina [=McBride=], nearly Music/MeatLoaf levels of pure rock loudness on Big & Rich's albums, and returned to ultra-slick pop sheen later in the decade for Music/LadyAntebellum. One of Worley's trademarks is using a very large number of instruments that come and go throughout the song.

The '''DIY''' occurs when a band gets GenreSavvy toward RealLife and decides to produce their albums themselves to avoid [[ExecutiveMeddling interference]]. Either that, or they have a creative vision that they couldn't express properly before.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Tickle David Tickle]]. According to the members of SplitEnz, Tickle became increasingly arrogant after producing ''True Colours'', their global breakout album. With the follow-up album ''Waiata'', they were dismayed at Tickle's refusal to give them any input into the final sound of the album. Later on, Department S and Crowded House had similar creative tensions.

Added DiffLines:

* Rick Rubin is famous for largely leaving bands to their own devices instead of taking an active role. This is part of the reason why Corey Taylor regrets having worked with him on ''Vol. 3''; by his own admission, Slipknot was mired in dysfunction at the time and really needed a producer who could give them a good kick in the ass and unite them, and Rubin's ''extremely'' laissez-faire approach was the absolute last thing that they needed from a producer at the time.
