Nice, but missing one key feature

I got this amp/app to make it super easy to practice. I practice over backing tracks in the app iReal pro. Everything works for playing with the track wirelessly, but it’s difficult to record. I’d like to be able to record my guitar and backing track on my phone so I can review my playing/improvisation as I practice. I don’t want to hook the amps line out to a computer because it defeats the purpose of a convenient small practice amp. I can’t use apples voice memo app without the Bluetooth backing track stopping playing from the amp and coming out of the phone. It would be nice is the app contained a feature that would allow you to record both the guitar and the backing track for practice purposes.

Update: the amp makes a clicking sound kinda like interference but at a lower frequency than normal. Very distracting when I’m trying to practice.


This is missing just a couple things

I love my Katana Air and the app is pretty good too, but I’d love to see a couple enhancements to make managing and creating sounds a lot easier.

First, I’d like to be able to edit a sound from the library and save that sound directly to a library liveset. Being able to only edit presets on the Katana and juggle them around in the app is time consuming and bothersome.

Also, it would be nice to be able to “push” the current state of the panel preset to a library liveset. Again, juggling presets back and forth just to create a new sound and keep the current Katana liveset is irksome.


Bluetooth not working right with the iOS app

This needs to be fix ASAP. I’m enjoying the play in the Boss Katana Air just got the thing and the app is not connecting Viva midi Bluetooth for the application for the app?? What’s up with that??? Man it would be nice to work with the app while connected to the amp. Come on update this please want to play! Wow hanks have a great day.
