I'm just getting into my Helix... been in a box since since 2015 due to my on the road work schedule. I've updated all the firmware, etc., and I connected the Helix to my Katana via MIDI and also connected it via the four cable method. I went to Preset>Templates>02A 4-Cable Method to begin experimenting with it. I am using HX Edit also, and I see that the Katana is already responding to MIDI communications from the Helix as it is changing the settings on the Katana when I select the different first bank footswitches (01A thru 02D). I've been moving around in HX Edit looking for the MIDI commands that are causing the changes in the Katana, but I can't seem to find where these settings are located. I looked in the Command Center, but nothing is assigned to anything here except footswitch 5 has "This footswitch cannot be assigned"... I'm guessing due to the looper. Anyone able to point me in the right direction here? I know how to assign MIDI from the Helix to the Katana using the PC and CC values provided in the Boss manual, but the Helix seems to be changing selections on the Katana that aren't listed in the list of commands available in the Katana manual, and I want to know how the Helix is doing this with its straight out of the box settings. Thanks for any assistance.
I’m connecting my Firehawk FX to my Boss Katana MK2 using the power amp-in connection. I’m confused if I should use the AMP or Line mode on the FX100. Any suggestions?
Hey guys and gals, Been thinking for a while about getting a Pod Go to act as my entire guitar rig. I play all different kinds of music, from acoustic bluegrass to classic rock/metal. I currently have a Boss Katana 100watt combo, but not the nice new MKII version, the original one. I use a wah pedal occasionally, but usually just the amp itself. I am wondering if this is worth the upgrade. I've seen things that say its an immense improvement, and others that say its comparable. I've seen many people talk about buying EITHER the katana or the pod go, but no one that currently has an old katana looking to upgrade. I record a bunch at home and gig pretty regularly, but the weight isn't a factor to me. My main worry is that if I buy the Pod Go, it'll end up sounding very similar to the Katana, just lighter and smaller in size. I like the fact that I can control everything from my feet, I currently have a single pedal footswitch that only does channel selection, but if the sounds are essentially the same, I can deal. Are the effects, amps, cabs, and mics on the Pod Go $500 better than the Katana? Is it worth the upgrade, or should I stick with the Katana? Thanks everyone
