Is there a method to assign a FOLDER on my internal SD Card storage area to store KatanaMan patch data ?
When first installed, KatanaMan Pro (and GT1Man, GT1BassMan) asks you where you would like the app to place its data files. You can choose to use either your android device's internal storage, or an SD Card if you have one installed.
You can choose to call the 'home' folder whatever you wish, however, by default KatanaMan creates it's 'home' folder (called 'KatanaMan') in the root of the 'Download' folder on the internal storage of your device. It also creates a 'SharedPatches' folder in it's 'home' directory (ie by default '../Download/KatanaMan/SharedPatches').
Once installed, you can use the in-app menu option 'General | Select Home Folder' to change the name and / or location of your home folder (eg from internal storage to an SD Card or vice versa).
You can use any file manager to create other (sub)folders you may require. Within KatanaMan you can navigate through a folder hierachy, and save your patches in any folder you wish.
When using the 'SetList' functionality, KatanaMan always looks for the patch related to a song, in the SharedPatches folder. However, if you are simply loading patch files (ie not using set lists), you can load/save them in any sub folder.
If you connect your Android device to a PC say, you can use a file explorer to access your patch folders/files.
KatanaMan does not permit you to navigate "above" (ie out of) the KatanaMan home folder.
The Send/Return (SR) controls are on the same button as Gate/EQ/SR. Just keep pressing the button to cycle through the windows. Use the On/Off button in the top left corner of the control view to turn SR on/off.
This is covered on page 6 in the user guide. KatanaMan Quick Start Guide
As at June 2022, KatanaMan supports all current versions of Boss ™ firmware for both the Series1 amp and the MkII amp.
