This new Katana amp's features has at least educated me regarding some terminology you guitarists use but one can get quite overloaded rather quickly. Understand now why the tone chase is referred to as the "death march" by some.....no end to it. I can now hear and understand what's meant by touch dynamics, compression, gain, scooped/boosted mids, etc. What's seems for me the most elusive is the relationship between gain and volume on overall tone. Geez, how do you dial it in? You have pre-amp volume and gain control, master amp volume, your choice of overdrive has a volume control, and finally the guitar has a volume knob. Tweaking one affects the others.....where do you start? Prefer a clean bright Fender-like tone with plenty of sustain and a hint of grit.
