Rachel Elkind (born February 23, 1939) produced the work of Wendy Carlos, such as Switched-On Bach. She moved to New York City from San Francisco hoping to be a jazz singer.

Elkind worked closely with Carlos from 1967 to 1980, when she moved to France with her husband, Yves Tourre. Carlos considers Elkind's contribution to her work underappreciated. Elkind's singing voice was processed via a vocoder on several Carlos recordings. She is also credited as co-composer for The Shining film score.
