Katana 50 (MKI) connection problem
« on: October 11, 2019, 09:57:26 am »
Hi all,

I just (stupidly) upgraded my Mac to MacOS Catalina v10.15.....no whenever I try to connect Tone Studio to my Katana 50 I get an error saying Katana connection failure.
I don't use Tone Studio much but it was working before.
Anyone else experienced this issue, or have upgraded and it works fine?
I have reinstalled the drivers and it makes no difference.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks
Neil

Unfortunately, there are widespread compatibility issues with Catalina, and practically every pro-audio manufacturer has indicated compatibility issues.

https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/production-expert-1/2019/9/18/brands-are-already-issuing-warnings-about-not-upgrading-to-macos-catalina

Boss, specifically, have said:

“If you are using a Roland product via a USB connection to a Mac computer, please refrain from upgrading to macOS Catalina (macOS 10.15), which is about to be newly released. Compatibility with macOS Catalina (macOS 10.15) will be verified and announced after the release of macOS Catalina (macOS 10.15).

It sounds, to me, like you may have to wait until they release compatible drivers.

That's not very helpful, I know, but it may serve as a warning to others.

Cheers,

Keith
