QuoteI noticed that when recording out of the Katana's USB port, sound is not two-way to the speaker, but it is to the headphone jack. :dunno
QuoteSince I'm a tech I figured it out. (how to install Roland / Boss USB Audio / MIDI Driver on Windows 10)First, you can't go get the drivers. Stupid Windows 10, and I say that as someone who really likes Windows 10, had the Katana driver as a WINDOWS UPDATE? What the hell? So I had to run a full Windows update to get the driver. Damn. That is not so easy.Then even after that, I couldn't get the Tone Studio to install. After clicking the .exefile it just wouldn't run. Even when I ran it as administrator. Then I realized that Tone Studio uses Adobe Air, one of the most buggy pieces of software I have even dealt with in my 20 years as a tech. Once I realized that I went to the adobe site and downloaded Adobe Air. Rean the Tone Studio .exe file and everything is good.But who in thir right mind is going to try all that? Especially the average guitarist who this amp is designed for. All this is going in my notes for my review. Not liking the software so far. At least the installation...
QuoteNeed some help with the software, actually the driver installation. When I attempted to install the driver on my Win 7 64 bit SP 1 machine I was informed that my version of Windows does not recognize the driver signature and will not install it. I uninstalled it and tried again, still no soap. I uninstalled it again, downloaded it again from the Boss site (in case it had been corrupted somehow), tried to reinstall from the second download but still get that message and the failure to install. Any one run into this or have any idea how to get around it?

Quote from: Beanow on April 08, 2017, 06:03:42 PMThis is what I do as well. There should be a security update for Win 7 out there to resolve this, but my Win 7 installation has seen so much abuse it fails to install *any* updates now.
QuoteGood news: I've just received the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709), and it solved my problem:No more "KATANA connection failure. Please select external MIDI/AUDIO device connection." error message in Boss Tone Studio.I was previously running version 1703.
Quote from: Elantric on November 02, 2016, 01:44:19 PMThat's by design DAW Audio only feeds Headphone jack. Detailed in the block diagram"* No signal from the USB will be output from the Speaker * "
Quote from: greyham on June 14, 2018, 12:11:01 AMI was surprised to discover this when my new Katana arrived today and I plugged it in to the USB port on my laptop for the first time. Spent ages trying to work out why no sound was coming out, then noticed the little note right there in the manual. Anyone know the rationale for this? It means the Katana can't be used as a fancy USB speaker. :-(Why didn't Boss just allow you to mute the speaker using the Standby switch or some other USB-controlled setting?Curious,Graham
Quote from: admin on June 14, 2018, 08:00:09 AMThey disabled USB audio playback direct to the Katana internal speaker because its only a limited frequency response guitar speaker and would sound bad as an audio playback device
