J.D. Robb (born John Donald Robb, 1892 in Minneapolis, Minnesota; died 1989 in Albuquerque, New Mexico) was a composer of electronic and classical music.

Robb was originally a professor emeritus of music and dean emeritus of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico, before turning his hand to music composition in 1941. He went on to compose various stage, classical and experimental electronic pieces, which were later compiled and released in the 1970s. The best known of these is Rhythmania And Other Electronic Musical Compositions [1] which contained a precursor to modern electronica entitled "Rhythmania".
