Boss Katana firmware update wish list (March 2017)


1 ) Add Control Assignments in Boss Tone Studio – these can allow ability to assign a user defined FX parameter Target for EV-5 Expression pedal and the three FX knobs: (Booster/Mod, Delay/FX, Reverb)

2 ) Permit user to store three distinct sets of deep FX parameters, one for each color (Green ,Red, Yellow) with unique FX Parameter settings.
At present, FX Parameter targets for the FX knobs default to a common setting regardless of the current “color” selected” and does not allowing user defined FX settings for each available effects memory selected (three available: Green, Red, or Yellow)

3 ) If the “Reverb” FX knob could have a mode to instead become a duplicate of “Delay / FX” or subset of the Delay / MOD / FX



4 ) Can the External FX Loop become separated from the AMP Block, and allow additional signal chain order options than just the current three.
Perhaps External FX Loop placed last after the Reverb. Or add a fourth chain configuration where all FX including Reverb could be pre –amplifier Block.



5 ) External FX loop status to be “Global or Patch” - Allow the on/off state and the Send / Return levels to be unique for each patch: (CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4)


6 ) SIGNAL CHAIN (CHAIN1,CHAIN2,CHAIN3) status to be “Global or Patch” - Allow the Signal Chain to be unique for each patch: (CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4)


7 ) Add the ability to turn off speaker simulation for the Line Out signal so users can use their own cabinet simulator.


8 ) Support more than four presets (CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4) , even if these can only be selected via MIDI, MIDI over USB


9) Release Complete Boss Katana MIDI Implementation

Ok, I'll go first.  In no particular order:

  • Add ability to assign panel knob to user's choice of deep DSP effect parameters (boost/mod/delay, etc.)
  • Permit user to store distinct sets of deep parameters for colors other than the one that's active at preset recall. At present, settings saved for the default are effective for both of the other colors.
  • Release complete MIDI spec
  • Support more than four presets.  It's ok with me if these can only be selected via MIDI - others may feel differently
  • Support controller assign in a manner similar to other Roland/Boss devices

Freeing up the reverb slot is the big one for me. I don't use reverb much and usually have some slapback going instead. I'd love to stick the slapback in the reverb spot.

Really would like each Channel to have a "switchable" effects loop.

At the moment you turn off effects loop in one channel then it is off on all of them

Similarly If you turn Effects Loop on on a channel the its on all of them.

In a nutshell , I want to choose in each channel if its on or off and it remembers the setting.

i'm using a looper in the send/return of the amp.
I would like to have a CHAIN4 in the BTS which sets the amp/eq section at last behind the reverb to grab also this effekt with my looper.

Thanks, Steve!  You have done the entire user community a service by reaching out and engaging with the good folks at Roland. I'm hopeful we'll see some or all of this implemented.
