I have a Code 25 and a windows 10 computer and I have tried everything and I can not get the amp to connect to my computer via USB. Does anyone know why? If anyone knows why please help!!!
I just want to check with fellow CODE users if they are facing the same issues that I am dealing with.
Biggest (and most annoying) issue is, it's a matter of luck connecting the CODE through USB. 2 times out of 10 my pc recognizes the amp the first time I plug it in. Mostly it gives an error that device is not connected properly or not recognized by windows. So I end up unplugging and plugging again until (if ever) it's been recognized. (Using windows 8.1 btw) Then suddenly in the middle of a recording session my DAW starts to drag like if I am running on a PC Pentium 600. (It's running on a 3000$ alienware) This is a sign that somehow CODE get disconnected itself. Now you have only option left: Restart the PC and start all over again.
So far I have checked with different USB cables, and I am using the shortest ones as possible as I can. (less than 80 cm.) I can't check with another pc since I don't have another one, but I am running Yamaha THR-10 smoothly, without any problems at all!
So I don't believe that there's an issue with my pc. And speaking of THR, why the hell CODE doesn't have it's dedicated USB drivers. I am kind of sure that the issue I am facing is all about the ASIO drivers that we are left with as an only option.
Second issue is, maybe only 1 out of 20 times I am able to get any presets from web site. Even if it looks like CODE is connected in the Device Manager, and the Chrome (or Opera) says MIDI is connected, I can't send any presets to the amp. After a few tries, this ends up with web browsers got frozen and only option is again: restart your pc!
I really would like to hear from people who are facing similar issues and how they could get over with it. (if they ever could)
And hopefully the only answer I receive from Marshall team is not going to be: "Thanks for your feedback, we will pass this to our technical team"
I bought a CODE 25 amp and I can’t connect with any computer, I have tried with 2 different cabes and some differente OS: Windows 7, 10 and macSierra. I was thinking to update the firmware but, I can do that because the amp is unable to be recoginized by a computer!
It`s really frustrating!
Hello, yeah just checking in to see if firmware updates are working for some cause I have had no luck at all with Win 10, or in Chrome. Downloaded update firmware and it just keeps sayin connect your amp with usb and I do? But nothing happens. I have the 25 and the 50 since they came out and it is April 2nd 2017... Just curious what is up and am I missing anything with these firmware updates?
Alrighty Thanks Tony K.
I just recently got a nice Code 25. And I am trying to record the sound through USB with Sonar Producer 8 in windows 10 OS. However, Sonar wont recognize Code. There are 3 options for audio devices in Sonar, which is MME, WDM KS and ASIO. When it switched to ASIO, Code is not shown at all, but when switched to either MME or WDM, Sonar tells me error in the Code USB driver with 2 options, "disabled" or "use anyway". And if I choose use anyway, Code will be shown but can not be selected as input for audio channel.
Checked the support from Sonar, Marshall Code has not listed in their support/download site.
Here is the address : www.cakewalk.com/support/hardwaresetup.
Anybody has solution for this?
Note : No problem at all for playback from windows to Code. Only problem for recording.
Any help or opinion will be appreciated.
I have a question on the Marshall Code 50 amp. Is it possible to connect the amp with a usb cable to a pc (Windows 10) and be listening to anything on the pc's soundcard, YouTube, media player, etc. and play guitar through the amp at the same time?
Has anyone had any success in using the CODE 50 with Propellerhead's Reason DAW via the USB connection?
My Windows laptop recognizes the CODE 50 when I hook it up, but Reason doesn't recognize it as a valid audio input that I can record from. I'm thinking it may be an ASIO issue. I know I can just run the headphone out of the CODE 50 into my Focusrite audio interface, but I was just curious about the USB option.
I've been recording on garageband and other softwares for a long time already!
However, I've bought this (crappy) amp to record via USB on these DVAs I'm used to work with. SO, aparently, after questioning people who uses the same amp, and here on the forum, NOBODY could explain the real reason why this "amp" won't work for recording via usb!
The TWO computers I use (macbook and PC - windows7) reconize the amp, however NO SOUND AT ALL are recorded!
I am familiar with LINE 6 products and I use them a lot. No problem at all with this gear! But MARSHALL, the most famous brand of amps on the world, releases an amp promising to do something they aparently are not able to!
Lame amp! recently bought and, hopefully, recently SOLD! Waste of my time and money!
I'm using Windows 10, and the Amp says "USB" when plugged into PC. I installed the window app, but all it says is "please connect your Code..,". I checked device manager and it says " Unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed). I tried uninstall, reboot, reload, etc., and different USB ports ,but nothing works.
Any plans to release a Windows desktop app for managing presets via USB connection? I'm not an Android or iPhone user. Editing via amp panel is ok, but somewhat tedious.
OK, so I followed the instructions I found in another answer here about uninstalling the updater and then downloading it and installing a newer version. Now there's a new error that occurs preventing the updater from working. I attached the error. One of the things I looked forward to being able to do with this amp was to record without having to use my Line 6 Pod as a crutch. However, neither of the programs I normally use (Pro Tools and an older program called RiffWorks) recognize the amp via usb, and I've downloaded some trial software of a couple newer DAWs that recognize it but there's a horrible squealing noise that's produced on top of it (not to mention the guitar sounds like a poor copy of the amp--almost like it's a paper amp). I am hoping the updater will fix these issues once the updater works.
i redownloaded the utility update set up.exe (it did seem that a new version was put out, but i still get the same error, ive attached a screen shot too. though it is in norwegian sorry bout that. also should my code be cooenced to the usb when running the programme?
noticed people having interferance issues with the usb connection like me. was just wondering how you guys are comming along with the firmware application for windows and the new firmware?
I am running Windows 10. When I plug in the USB cable and run the updater - it says Code found, but has a spinnin circle that says "Waiting for USB". Any ideas?
I've downloaded the firmware updater onto my Windows 7 (most recent updates loaded) PC and it seems that there is no eligant way to close the updater after use. I had to use ProcMgr to force the updater to shutdown.
I also found that unless you do things in the correct way - fire up the updater tool before plugging in the USB, it seemed to get very confused - again I had to use procmgr to close it down.
