About Illinois Audio

IAP’s History of Audio Excellence

The “record” light in the Illinois Audio Productions (IAP) studio first switched red in 1986. Ever since, our reputation for impeccable recording has been matched only by our highly attentive personal service and our commitment to satisfied customers.

A truly family owned and operated business, IAP’s place in the relatively new Messages-on-Hold (MOH) industry began the autumn before in 1985, when Chuck Filippi was managing a local radio station. One of the station’s advertising clients reached out to Chuck about music royalty issues the client was experiencing at his auto dealership. By playing radio through his phone’s On-Hold System and Overhead in the showroom, music copyright enforcers insisted: pay a fee or risk heavy fines.

The need for a custom, licensed, personalized MOH audio production was obvious, IAP was born, and Ron Westphal Chevrolet of Aurora, Illinois became our first client.

Today’s IAP Approach

Business phone technology and digital recording have changed and IAP has adapted with tremendous flexibility to keep pace. MOH recordings once mixed on cassette tapes or burned to CDs are now more than likely produced in MP3s and .wav files, loaded remotely or by a simple download to a USB drive.

Throughout the telephone system, IAP specializes in much more than MOH. Our recording capabilities extend to Automated Attendant and Interactive Voice Response greetings. Of course, we haven’t forgotten our family roots in radio and can help with your next advertising spot or an entire campaign.

Overhead Music/Messages, audio for social media, online tutorials, E-Learning, video/industrial narration…if there’s a voice track and/or licensed music needed, IAP can help.
