Easy enough to ring out ground on the balanced output connections with a DVM, but maybe not such a good idea to use balanced rather than the unbalanced outputs. Usually, the way balanced output are derived from a 6-opamp output stage like the one in Katana means that not all output stage filter processing has been done at that output. Unless the user knows how to finish that, probably better to either use the unbalanced outputs directly, or rebalance them with a two opamp circuit commonly used for that purpose (such as the one shown below).

@atca,

Hmmm... the pinout for the XLR's IS in the original Katana manual, but I didn't see it in the later one.

Pinout on each is + || Grnd || - as viewed from above, with '-' at the '0' printed on the right side of each XLR pads.

@Markw4, I'm curious what Allo will have to say about the output filtering on the XLR outputs.
