Boss has decided to give owners of Mk 1 versions of its Katana amps a wee Christmas present this year by releasing a free update to Version 4 that adds new effects.

Effects and more

So what’s new? V4 adds new effects, plus stereo features with newer models. The new effects are called Heavy Octave, Stereo Delay and Pan Delay. Boss has also added a Pedal FX section that gives you a foot-controlled wah and pedal bend.

Another new feature is the ability to use the Series 1 amps as a slave with Series 2 models for stereo use. This Stereo Expand function gives you an easy way to set up a stereo rig – as long as one of the models is already version 2.

The Version 4 update is only for the original Series 1 Katana amps and will not work on the newer Series 2 models. Follow my link below to get your free Version 4 update for your Katana amp.

    Does the Version 4 upgrade makes a Katana Mk1 fully compatible with BOSS Tone Studio Editor, .tls presets, for Mk2 Katanas?
