    You can do that, or if you have installed the drivers you can use the USB interface built into the Katana.

    By USB interface do you mean the Tone Studio or some other way to record?

    I think you should also be able to record direct into Audacity via the USB interface. Give it a try and let us know if it works............ :thumb:

    You should be able to select Katana Primary as your input device in Audacity. If I were you, I'd download Reaper, It's much easier to use.

    Truly, Audacity should have been named Timidity. It's not very audacious.

    I've never found it to be of any use to record a guitar. The latency is beyond audacious.

    I have recorded the Katana 50 with audacity.
    If i used the usb in, i didnt seem to get much signal, so i bought a 1/4 to 3.5 jack cable, using headohone out of the amp into the pc, it works ok for what i need.

    Use the system settings in Tone Studio to turn it up. With V2.2 firmware you can set up the speaker sim too. The best thing to do is learn how to use the amp properly.

    Wohoooo................ got my Katana 100 combo back today from Roland repair. Total turnaround time was exactly 14 days. That's pretty darned good! Cost me $30 USD to ship it to them so "I've got that going for me". :rolleyes:

    The power supply transformer was replaced. FWIW, the amp seems to be a LOT quieter now so maybe the transformer was doing a slow swan song. ??? Anyway, kudos to Boss/Roland for repairing the amp quickly.

    *** In January (record storm season) we had a half dozen power outages so maybe the amp got an over voltage kick. ??? Anyway, I'm now running the amp from a filtered AC source. :whistling:

    For the past 2 weeks I've been using my 'old' Mustang III and digging the snappy clean tones. I'll try to do a shootout between the Mustang and the Katana.

    Well that's great news, I wasn't expecting it to come back so quickly. It is of course now necessary to undertake (simulated) destruction testing... :p
