- How it works
How it works
The analog circuits in the preamplifier are activated by either inserting stereo headphones into the headphone jack or by connecting your guitar to an amp or PA with a 1/4" instrument cable. Once you've activated the preamplifier you've got access to classic Ovation amplified sound, the built-in digital recorder, a built-in microphone and tuner, and audio lessons pre-installed that can help you become a better guitarist and songwriter. A small joystick made into the preamplifier handles the navigation through the feature set. When inspiration strikes, simply hit the record button to arm the recorder, hit it again to start recording. Your ideas are captured so you'll never again lose a moment of genius.
One of the most exciting features of the iDea preamplifier is its ability to transfer program material to and from a computer using a standard USB connection. While the iDea comes with a wide range of introductory sample material, Ovation has seen to it that a large wide range of more program material is available and constantly updated on the web. The iDea stores program material in the widely used MP3 format. Virtually any MP3 program material can be stored in the preamp's memory.
