All Ocean Audio products were designed and built by Malcolm Toft. Malcolm recently decided to retire from pro audio manufacturing. As a result, all existing Ocean Audio products are no longer manufactured. New products have been announced. Check out the new home of the Ark console for information about these new products. Interphase Audio has been worldwide distributor for Ocean Audio from the beginning. We have some remaining stock of some products. All products are brand new, and come with full warranty (by Ocean Audio, and by Interphase Audio). This is your chance to get get a great deal on one of these products. Please contact us if you would like one of them.
From time to time, we replace our demo units with new products. As a result, we sell these demo units with a nice discount. You can find a list of demo units below the Ocean Audio products.
Ocean Audio - Signature Three Dual Channel, All Discrete, Inductive Equaliser
The Signature Three consists of two identical channels of discrete transistor - inductor based - equalisation. Silicon transistors as opposed to integrated circuits (op-amps) provide a much simpler dedicated signal path, thereby providing a much cleaner signal path. Silicon transistors can also be run at much higher voltages than integrated circuits which vastly increases the headroom capability.
Inductor based circuits are the ‘holy grail’ of equaliser designs. These were used for example in the much favoured Pultec equaliser design, which dates back to the late 1950‘s. Owing to their unique electro-mechanical properties, inductors impart a character all their own which is very distinctive. Because of their cost and large size, inductors are rarely used in the low frequency ranges of other currently available equalisers. Most other manufacturers use non-inductive, shelving circuits for the extreme low and high ranges, but these circuits do not give the precise control provided by inductors. The Signature Three uses inductors in each of the four sections (bands) giving precise control and the distinctive inductor sound on each range.
We have one unit available for €1299 (instead of €1999). All units are brand new and come with full warranty. Contact us to get one of them. More info can be found at the original product page.

The separate Hi-Z input on the front panel allows you to directly plug-in a guitar or keyboard, and / or use this unit as a DI-box. Phantom Power and Phase Reverse switch are pretty standard on most Preamps, but this unit also has a 80 Hz hi-pass filter.
We have a limited amount of units available for €199 (instead of €299). All units are brand new and come with full warranty. Contact us to get one of them. More info can be found at the original product page.

IGS Audio - Springtime 4 channel analogue spring reverb
The IGS - Springtime is a 4-channel analogue reverb, using one pair of long springs, and one pair of short springs. Every channel has separate wet and dry volume control, and 3-band EQ. This is without any doubt, the best spring reverb available.
We have one demo unit available for €2100 (instead of €2495). This unit is in perfect condition, and of course comes with full warranty.
IGS Audio - Tubecore 500 Tube vari-mu compressor in 500-series format
The IGS - Tubecore 500 is a full symmetric transformer balanced 500-series compressor. The structure is based on the typical var-mu solution. The Tubecore 500 is a true tube mono compressor. Can be used as a mono tracking compressor or (as a matched pair) as an advanced mastering tool.
We have one demo unit available for €695 (instead of €829). This unit is in perfect condition, and of course comes with full warranty.
IGS Audio - Bison 500 Parallel mixer with Mid/Side processing
The IGS - Bison 500 will turn your favourite two compressors into a parallel, Mid/Side compressor. It has two stereo jack connectors (2 sends and 2 returns) on the front panel which can be used to connect your favourite dual mono or two mono compressors. We have one demo unit available for €499 (instead of €599). This unit is in perfect condition, and of course comes with full warranty.
The IGS - Neox 500 is a budget microphone preamplifier and compressor combo, fitted into a single 500-series module. It was designed using advanced transformerless design, providing low-noise signal path and excellent dynamic response. We have one demo unit available for €399 (instead of €529). This unit is in perfect condition, and of course comes with full warranty.
