I get what you mean, though. I don't dig the gain channels much, and it's hard to get the built in effects set how I like for max flexibility. I think I might send back the GA-FC for a GT-1
Thanks for posting this is how I would want to run mine. Actually I don't mind messing with the onboard stuff (already have a Mustang) just prefer the option of using the pedals I have collected over the years.Yesterday I used a TC “Spark” booster with it, Clean, dropped Mids clean, then tried the Spark on Clean Boost, Fat and Mids. All three worked very well.
To be honest I’d still prefer a two channel version (Clean and Crunch) with maybe just the built in Reverb and Boost controls.
Actually just Clean with Boost and then pedals - frankly I can’t be arsed to frig around with a computer changing parameters (but may do when I have time) when I have pedals that I like that have easy to change parameters.
Still loving this amp! Amazing for the price.
Which actually works very wellI think I might
(Try a GT-1 with Katana)
Interesting, but what's wrong with running the GT-1 directly into the front of the Katana?Which actually works very well
I used guitar into a third party a/b/y selector that feeds both Katana INPUT and GT-1 INPUT and then use a quality 3.5mm TRS cable and feed GT-1 Headphone out into Katana Aux (Mix in ) INPUT and have an incredible sounding rig
This even works with Katana 50
Or on Katana 100 use BTS to assign the FX Loop for Parallel mode and run GT-1 Left Mono out into Katana FX Loop Return
But the 1st scenario above allows you to feed Katana Stereo Headphone out into a separate passive stereo DI box to feed the FOH PA or IEM system and Katana sits mono while GT-1 sits in a stereo field
Run an EV-5 into the Katana's rear expression pedal INPUT and then get your desired tone (Katana or GT-1 or blend of both using Katana and GT-1 expression pedals
Oh man, the Katana 50 has a stereo Headphone out? What's great about posts like this is I learn a whole new way to use the gear I already have! I just ordered a 3.5mm TRS stereo cable to better feed my headphone/emulated outs (of the modelers I do have) to my monitors and also my stereo power amp to cabs.That works too
And very well
But in my suggested scenario I get major wall of sound unfathonable at this price
Thanks, I did not see that topic. Google brought me to this one. So I guess thats how it is with only 3 effects. Shame, kind of an unnecessary limitation. Well at least I can use a booster and octaver separately.
That's what I was thinking. An amp a piece for my son and I, and when I gig play both for a little separation. A Landry someday, but I will own this amp. I appreciate this long thread.I have a pair of Roland CUBE-80GX; if I didn't I'd have a pair of Katana 100-1x12. I think the general consensus is that Katana is the replacement for the CUBE guitar amps at least...so that's where I'd go if buying today: Katana. My CUBE amps only have 3 effects with fewer options and no effect loop. With some of the Katana models, you can add effects to the loop, and in both cases you can run effects in front of the amps.
