    Can I plug this in to my computer and control Bias that way? It would change everything for me.

    Yes - it should work - but may be hard to locate in USA until Summer 2019
    The Cuvave Cube Magic is very similar to the "Melo Audio ToneShifter Mega" which has been around for over a year

    Melo Audio is now OEM for the Harley Benton MP-500
    https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_mp_500_interface_foot_control.htm

    (both are identical)

    And now there is finally a readable Owners Manual

    https://images.static-thomann.de/pics/atg/atgdata/document/manual/432466_c_432466_en_online.pdf

    TGP have nuked the MElo ToneShifter mega thread

    it never shows up in search - read it here

    Katana 100 via USB would be great. Or you're talking about the katana head only?

    The Cuvave Cube Magic will require a separate Primovasound MIDX-20 to control the Katana 100 combo via MIDI over USB

    The 100 combo doesn't have MIDI ports. Maybe we could use the USB port?

    USB Host to 5pin MIDI Converters


    Because all MIDI foot controllers with USB connection I know ( as well as the Boss GP-10, Fishman Tripleplay, Line6 FBV Shortboard MKII , Ampero are:

    USB Client (EndPoint) Devices

    The USB Bus requires One device to act as USB HOST Controller - and those are typically computers
    http://electronics.stackexchange.co...-the-difference-between-a-usb-host-and-device

    The USB Host Controller initiates all communication on the USB bus, the USB Endpoint Device only responds when asked by the USB Host Controller.
    For Details see the specs on www.usb.org.
    http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/devclass_docs/

    (And tell anyone you know (Marketing Manager's, etc) to study the USB Specification before they vote to omit the 5pin DIN MIDI I/O jacks from new gear just to save $2.00 cost.

    Geez that's inexpensive. Even just as an additional looper that happens to offer some reverb and phase to use on a quick little keys loop .... that's a good price.
