Biography

Benjamin Rice is a recording engineer and vocal producer in Los Angeles with credits including Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Robin Thicke, and 5th Harmony. Aside from primarily working with Top 40 artists, producers and songwriters, Benjamin is also a musician, producer and mixer for many indie artists as well. 

Born in Texas, he first started playing drums at the age of 13; by the age of 17 he was a session drummer and intern at a local recording studio. Immediately falling in love with engineering and producing, he quickly earned a position there as a staff engineer.

Over the next several years, Ben recorded and performed on countless records for various regional acts and toured the country performing with several bands until later joining the Army.

Eventually deciding to go back to school, Benjamin graduated from Full Sail and moved to Los Angeles where he would meet Producer/Engineer Josh Gudwin. This relationship led to a recommendation at the Record Plant in Hollywood where he was then hired as a staff engineer.

Spending the next few years working alongside the industry’s best artists, producers and engineers, Ben continued crafting his own skills and began to build up clients of his own.

Benjamin now works as a freelance engineer, vocal producer, and mixer in the greater Los Angeles area on a variety of projects.

Product Reviews

  • Brainworx bx_limiter

    I love this limiter because it does so much more than just standard peak limiting. The channel link, parallel and saturation features make this one of my most effective and favorable tools for handling dynamic control across multiple busses.

  • elysia mpressor

    It's very important to me when working on vocals to have several different options, styles and flavors of compression to achieve various techniques, and the mpressor is truly a special tool that I can use to get compression results distinct from any other.

  • Brainworx bx_control V2

    I love the bx_control, not only because it is such a quick and handy tool for monitoring M/S when I'm mixing ITB, but also because it's an immediately effective way to both tighten and widen something in the mix.

  • Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2

    This is one of my new favorite plugins from Brainworx. It is by far one of the most flexible and precise tools I use on a consistent basis to manage harsh frequencies across a vocal buss. I'm blown away with how transparent it is, even beyond moderate settings.
