I’ve had the MKII 50 for about a year now but have only begun to look into the software side recently. I plan to give this a try out in the very near future and will definitely give you some feedback. Thanks for all your work and efforts guys!

I recently bought a katana 50. It’s my first amp and am having a blast twiddling all the dial and effects.

While I will eventually get around to using tone studio on my laptop, I’m try to learn with the local panel controls. Would it be possible to include a textual description of the settings along with the downloadable file. That way I’ll be able to “manually” dial in for example the Kleen Start setting.

Example format:

Amp: Brown
Gain: 1 o’clock
Mid: 10 AM
Reverb: Plate, 5 o’clock
Perhaps anything not specified defaults to off or min.

A lot of people probably won’t hook the katana to a computer, but they would sure love to learn how to make tones by using your examples.

The problem is, many of the patches, including “Kleen Start” include some of the effects that can only be configured from Boss Tone Studio.




Majik is right. You can start by dialing in the tone on the panel using the below settings.

Panel knobs

Amp: Clean
Gain: 60
Volume: 62
Bass: 59
Middle: 39
Treble: 66
Booster: Off
Mod: 18
FX: Off
Delay: 64
Reverb: 70
Presence: 68

Different settings need to be configured in Boss Tone Studio if you want to achieve the sound Justin created.

Thanks @Jeff, I will try those panel settings.

I finally got my Laptop connected. the Roland tech support diagnosed my problem and told me I needed to update the amp’s firmware.

Tone Studio has a great UI and makes it easy to understand how many different effects are built in. It boggles the mind. A benefit of using Tone Studio is that it puts names to the red, orange and green options for each effect.
