News Ovation CC54i-PL iDea

Ovation presents the iDea, a new electric-acoustic guitar that incorporates a built-in MP3 recorder/player.


The digital recorder is part of the on-board Ovation preamp. According to Ovation, the patented technology makes possible a list of features never before available on any guitar — acoustic or electric. The simple and direct recording control makes it easy to record entire songs or fragments, even vocals and commentary.

The iDea can record from the guitar alone, simultaneously from the guitar and built-in microphone, and from an auxiliary input. Any audio signal fed into the auxiliary input is converted to an MP3 file and stored in the iDea memory.

The iDea is also a learning tool, with audio lessons pre-installed in the memory. Additional lessons from iDea educational partner, WorkshopLive.com, will be available via download. Several “Jam Tracks” are also pre-installed in the instrument, with others available online.

Downloading files from a computer or the Internet is easy via USB. Files in the iDea can be moved, renamed, deleted and rearranged right on the computer desktop. Mixes from recording software, rhythm tracks, even songs the player wants to learn can be downloaded and played either through the guitar output or headphones.
