Condor,can you point me to an idiots guide on how to get this working,for idiots like me(old ones)
Must use an Android device ( Phone/ Tablet) that supports USB OTG ( USB Host) adapters and has Android OS version 5.1 or higher
Search google for the specific working "micro USB OTG" adapter for YOUR Android device ( many generic ones don't work )
Locate the forum for your device here to get the link for the working USB OTG adapterhttps://forum.xda-developers.com
Then use a USB 2.0 Printer cable between Katana USB jack and the OTG adapter connected to your Android device

I think i,ve run into my first issue,my phone is a
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Android Version 5.0
I think i read in the thread it has to be Version 6.0 or higher?
The issue is older versions of Android that old will NOT connect to the Roland/ Boss gear and support "MIDI over USB"
Trivia - This is because the Katana is NOT USB Class Compliant ( while the Fender Mustang amp is ) , and only some versions of Android OS 5.1 or higher include Alsa / Jack Audio (incorporated into latest versions of android ) which the Linux community included support for Roland / Boss MIDI over USB a few years ago, and that code eventually got rolled into Android
My Galaxy NOTE 2 - does not work
NVidia Shield K1 (Android 7)- works
LG V20 (Android 7) - works
