I liked the 1.30 version of the firmware!! After the learning curve and getting use to the interface/screen,. I found it was very good as other products have the same interface screens. Now with the new interface 2.0 version and above, it is not that intuitive, again a learning curve. What I really, really don't like is the NO CONNECTION, no matter what is tried............... To the EX, with the Airstep's as a bridge like the old 1.30 on the Katana Air. Not good, I like my Airsteps!!!!!!!

Thank you for your feedback and sorry to hear that you are not wholly satisfied with the latest version of the app. The app was updated to be made compatible with the Katana-AIR EX and as such, I am sorry to say that we cannot guarantee compatibility with the 3rd party Airstep.

Continuously disconnects from new Katana Air Ex. Cannot recover connection without both closing app and turning amp off by hand. Remote hands off functionality with a simplistic phone interface was the entire point of this amp (and app) for me -- if I have to get up constantly or use a pc to control the Katana Air Ex then I would rather use other products that I already own. Disappointing.

Thank you for your review, sorry to hear you have had trouble connecting. Please ensure that all Bluetooth pairings have been deleted and that you re-establish connection with one device. This ensures best stability and no attempts to connect to other devices. If the issue persists, please contact our tech support team via Roland Backstage.

Total garbage! Disconnects every time I quit playing. Can't play backing tracks on Bluetooth (one of the main reasons I bought this). I tried two android phones and my iPad pro. I'm going to call Boss then return this POS if it still won't work! I have a Yamaha THR10 if I wanted to walk to the amp or plug in my phone for a backing track! Plus it sounds WAY better than the Katana!
