  2. How do I access the Catalyst Edit Software? Go to Line6.com, and click on the "Downloads" tab. Select your Catalyst amp model from the Hardware dropdown, then select "Catalyst Edit” from the Software dropdown, and select your operating system/hardware (i.e. Windows 10, Mac OS, iOS, Android). What devices can I use the Catalyst Edit on? Catalyst Edit was designed to work on Quad Platform Architecture (QPA), meaning it can be used on Windows desktop or full-fledged laptop Computers, Mac computers, i-Phone/i-Pad devices, and Android phones and tablets. System requirements - MacOS 10.14 or newer, Windows 7 or newer, iOS (iPhone/iPad) 12.1 or newer, or Android™ OS 6.0 or newer. For optimal USB audio performance on Windows computers, download and install the free Line 6 CATALYST ASIO driver from line6.com/software. USB Host Mode differs on many devices, so Catalyst Edit may not be compatible on all Android devices. How can I determine which version of the Catalyst Firmware I have on my amp? Make sure you have downloaded the most recent version of "LIne6 Updater". Connect your Catalyst amp to a computer/device via USB, and open the Updater. Your amplifier should be displayed, and the Firmware version indicated as below: What does Catalyst Edit Allow me to do?

    Catalyst FAQ

    What is Catalyst? The CatalystTM family comprises of three dual-channel combo amplifiers that perform like traditional guitar amps—while providing the increased versatility of modern amps. Does Catalyst use traditional amp models like previous Line 6 products? Catalyst amps offer six Original Amp Designs—ranging from pristine clean to modern high-gain—crafted by our sound design team using renowned HX® sound design techniques to ensure exceptional tone and feel. Ideal for stage or studio. What amps and effects are included? • Original Amp Designs—Clarity (Clean), Aristocrat (Boutique), Carillon (Chime), Voltage (Crunch), Kinetic (Dynamic), Oblivion (Hi Gain) • Boosts—Customized for each amp • 18 Effects Delays: Simple Delay, Vintage Digital, Transistor Tape, Adriatic Delay, Dual Delay, Ducking Delay Modulation: PlastiChorus, Opto Trem, Script Mod Phaser, Gray Flanger, Ubiquitous Vibe, Rotary Pitch/Filter: Bass Octaver, Growler Synth, Pitch Harmony, Pitch Shift, Tycoctavia Fuzz, Synth String * Reverbs—Hot Springs, Hall, Chamber, Plate, Ganymede, Plateaux * Noise Gate How many of the 18 Delay, Modulation or Pitch/Filter effects can be active at the same time? One at a time, pre or post-amp voicing. There’s only one knob for each effect. Can I edit them beyond just effect mix? Yes, deep editing of effects is available in Catalyst Edit, available on macOS, Windows, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Does it take pedals well? Absolutely – external effects can be placed in front of the amp input, in the effects loop, or run an external modeler into the power amp in jack. Is there a footswitch for Catalyst? Yes, the Catalyst amps have a standard ¼” input for the optional LFS2 footswitch. The 2-button LFS2 is a roadworthy metal latching footswitch that provides remote control of Channel and Effect on/off status. The Effect switch may be reassigned via the Catalyst Edit app to control a number of other functions, including Boost on/off, Reverb on/off, Tap Tempo and more. A ten-foot right-angle/straight TRS cable is included. NOTE: most standard 2-button latching footswitches will work as well. Why is the LFS2 footswitch not included with the Catalyst? The LFS2 footswitch is optional so as to not burden the customer's cost of the amp. Not all players require a footswitch, and many players already have a latching footswitch. Are there presets? Catalyst stores 6 banks of presets with 2 channels each, for a total of 12 presets. Presets can also be edited/saved using Catalyst Edit. I’m a power user. How deep is the MIDI implementation? All 12 tones can be recalled via PC, and a wide variety of effect parameters, preset parameters, and effect on/off functions can be controlled via CC. Catalyst 200 and 100 have MIDI DIN connectors and all three can speak MIDI over USB. Click here to find the manual with the CC assignments and values. Can I use the Catalyst 60’s USB over MIDI capabilities without using a computer? Although the expected use of the Catalyst 60’s USB over MIDI capabilities is with a computer, you are welcome to try your choice of USB Host to 5 pin DIN MIDI solutions available on the market. However, we cannot recommend or endorse any given solution. What’s different between Catalyst and Spider V MkII? • Original Amp Designs created using HX modeling techniques • Dedicated boost for each Original Amp Design • Traditional workflow instead of screens and menus • Effects Loop and Power Amp In • Three power attenuation options, including mute for silent recording • Stereo 1/4" Dual Latching footswitch in lieu of FBVTM foot controller (sold separately) • MIDI DIN In/Out/Thru (Catalyst 200 and 100) • Built-in wireless not included • Full-range tweeter not included • Drum loops, metronome, and built-in looper not included When is Catalyst shipping? February 2022, worldwide. Where can I learn more? Please locate your nearest dealer here.

  5. Updating the Firmware: Connect the IEC power cable Using a computer or tablet, go to www.line6.com/software and download Line 6 Updater Connect the amplifier to your tablet or computer using a USB-B to USB-A or USB-C connection as required by your device Open Line 6 Updater on your device Power up the Catalyst amplifier with the master volume all the way down The Amplifier model and the currently installed firmware version will be displayed as shown: Click on the amplifier photo A window in Updater will open asking you what version of the firmware you want to update to Select the latest version and click ‘Update” Accept the Terms and Conditions When the update completes, the Updater will display a message stating “Your Line 6 product will now restart automatically, and will be ready for use.” IMPORTANT! After the update is complete, power down your Catalyst amplifier, then “RESET” the amplifier by holding down the “B” and “MANUAL” channel buttons while turning the power switch back on. This will update all the presets to the new default settings, so if you want to save your settings, use Catalyst Edit to do so before updating. If the Catalyst fails to update: Power down the amp and close the Updater app. Open the Updater again, then power up the Catalyst while holding A and B to put the unit into bootloader mode. You will then need to manually select the correct Catalyst product from three choices presented by the Updater. Select the latest firmware version, then accept the Terms and Conditions. After the update is complete, power down your Catalyst amplifier, then “RESET” the amplifier by holding down the “B” and “MANUAL” channel buttons while turning the power switch back on.
