Ľudovít Rajter (Lajos Rayter; 30 July 1906, Pezinok, Slovakia – 6 July 2000, Bratislava, Slovakia) was a Slovak composer and conductor of ethnic Hungarian origin. The Rayter family immigrated to Hungary from South-Germany, but were of Dutch origin. Since 1740, according to LR the family became Hungarian.

Rajter got his first musical education at the Town School of Music in Bratislava, where he studied with Alexander Albrecht. From 1920, he studied piano with Frico Kafenda and cello with Rudolf Rupník at the School of Music for Slovakia in Bratislava. After finishing this school, in 1924, his education continued at the Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna.
