After working with Malcolm Toft at another pro audio manufacturer for years, Malcolm and I got together late 2012, to talk about a new range of products. Malcolm wanted to go back to his roots, and again offer the pro audio community classic, analogue products, building on the heritage of Trident and MTA.
Malcolm did not want to get involved with sales, marketing and branding, and invited me to handle all that. We started a unique collaboration of two separate companies, based in two different countries. Each company being in the industry for decades and each company doing what it’s best at. We decided to brand the products under the Ocean Audio name.
Ocean Audio took of rather well, but late 2015, Malcolm announced he wanted to retire, and be no longer involved with Ocean Audio. Since then, I have been bringing in new designers, setting up manufacturing, working out new products, talking with a lot of industry professionals, veteran and young producers, retailers, musicians, distributors, engineers, DJ’s and even young kids still in training. Getting all their feedback and combining this into the design of classic analogue products, upgraded for the 21st century workflow.
These 2 years have been big fun and we achieved amazing results. Because of Malcolm’s retirement, all Malcolm Toft designed Ocean Audio products are end-of-life and are no longer produced.
The present and the future
For over 2 years, a whole group of designers, from all over Europe, has been working on new products. We combined British design and tradition, French flair, Italian style, German grundlichkeit, Belgian concensus and Dutch dynamics. In short, the best of the EU and the UK, and although we’re not there yet, we’re incredibly proud of what we've achieved so far. You can find more info about these European designed and hand-crafted products on the other pages of this website. To avoid all confusion between Malcolm Toft built products, and the new products, and since we actually took a new start, the brand name has been changed from Ocean Audio to Interphase Audio.
We hope you like the new Interphase Audio products.

While we did our best to make this site compatible with all kinds of smartphones and tablets, it is really best viewed on a larger screen, because there is a lot of information, pictures, and navigation. We don’t doubt that most of our professional customers have a desktop computer with a large screen in their studio. We suggest that you pour yourself a nice drink, sit down in your studio and enjoy the time browsing through these pages.
