I'm using USB on my Mac and the Mac sees the Code and allows me to set the speaker to it.
When I pull up a Youtube video and start it the video will play for about 5 seconds and then halts.
It's almost like something else is intercepting it. It basically locks up and I have to close the browser.
Same issue when using the Code 25 as input device on Mac for Garage Band. It recognizes it but when I record
upon playback the sounds are scratchy and unusable
This Code 25 works on my Windows Machine both ways as Input and Output device flawlessly
I have installed the latest firmware so that is not the issue.
Any ideas on what it might be causing the problem on the Mac?
Hi I have a CODE 100 half stack (100H + 4x12 cab) AND a CODE 100 2x12 combo, which just arrived today.
I was expecting the two CODE amps to work together on USB, so I can get 2 guitar traces into my Mac in parallel. Unfortunately I'm disappointed to see that Mac will only see ONE CODE at a time. Looks like they both have the same device ID which creates issue on the bus?
Is this an actual bug? If so, please remove this limitation via firmware update because it would definitely make sense to have more than one CODE connected to the computer without needing additional hardware such a sound interface.
Please let me know asap thanks.
Actually I'm totaly not interested in bluetooth connection, but of course I understand that it might be an essential prolem for some people...
But there are some other problems I'd like you to find good solution for.
1. Master volume. From 0 to 10% there is almost no sound, over 10% it becomes very loud.
2. Decreasing sound level with Volume pot results in decreasing USB signal level - not acceptable for players using USB output for recording in DAW software. It would be nice if for clean preamp gain at 2 and volume at 3 give recording level about -6 dB, now it is about -36 dB...
Best regards, Jacek.
P.S. What is a frequency range of CODE 25 speaker?
please find away to do BT firmware update. just hoping.
1) Bought Code new, when released, USB port was loose and wont connect. Cant do Firmware or recording via USB. How to get service?
got at Guitar Center San Mateo Ca. When first released, hadn't ever really used USB, but realizzed it is messed up, like port is disconnected or broken. USB is wiggles and no connection.
2) Cant get Gateway to Recognize tye Amp while BT stream audio okay. tried all steps from this site cleared phone and cache, removed and reinstalled, no diifference. Multiple versions of Android. 5 to 8.
I am experiencing terrible interference when trying to use my Code 50 via Bluetooth / Gateway (Apple) App while recording on my Mac in Logic Pro X. I am using a microphone to record the Code 50 and using the Bluetooth Movies series world to change patches. The clicks/pops/noise/interference is loud enough to interfere with the recording process. Perhaps a DESKTOP (Apple) Gateway App via Code USB might be a solution for all users experiencing similar issues? I am running the most current Firmware. Any current solution to my noise issues?
Hello, I have acquired the CODE 25, really an excellent amplifier, very versatile and very good presets. My problem and please I hope you help me to resorve it, is that even though I can connect via Bluetooth, I can listen to my tracks ....... the big problem is that when I want to use the FX or presets it appears that there is no amplifier connected ... (either from my android phone or my Ipad I ... I do not understand what the problem is.) Secondly, when I want to install the MARSHALL FIRMWARE UPDATE UTILITY, to enter presets or update the ampli, does not recognize the connection.I request guidance to be able to make full use of such a beautiful tool for my music.I use Widows 10 and G. Chrome.For your attention, thank you very much
Hi, i have a Marshall Code 50. I tried to record with usb input but there is a lot of noise (interference) every 10-15-20 seconds (random).
I have high quality cable and a yamaha RGX A2. With the oldest firmware version it was noisier, now with the v1.41 is better but how can I fix?
Sorry for my english.
Hi! Just bought the CODE 25 amp and I've put the firmware up to date, everything seems to be ok but when I unplug the USB, the LCD reads "CHK USB". I turn it off then on, try to unplug and replug and still read CHK USB and the amp doesn't work.
Thanks for your answers
I'm using the USB connection from a PC to the Code 25, and found that the ouput sound on the headphones is only mono-left mixed. I get sound in both speakers on my headset, but when I test left/right channels, it's obvious that the sound is only coming from left channel.
This isn't an issue when I'm playing music through the Bluetooth connection, and both left/right channels come through ok.
Is there a firmware fix so that when sound is channeled through USB to the headphone 3.5mm jack, it'd be stereo instead of mono-mixed?
Just bought the 50. I have done the hold the 3 buttons down while turning it on to see the current version. I then connect the USB and it says USB connected Ready to update. But when I try to update from both the browser and the utility, it says "please connect your code". I have made the config changes on the troubleshooting site, and used 2 different laptops and 3 different cables but none of them will push the updates. It won't show the Code as being connected for some reason.
Anyone have an idea of where I am going wrong? I don't have any Chrome updates to do, and I am stumped. I don't want to have to return this if there is an easy fix.
Thanks in advance!
I just bought the Marshall Code25 and tried to update the Firmware via USB.
I have launched the firmware update from the Chrome Navigator and from Windows firmware application. After update performed, Code25 remains to version 1.11 and firmware indicates my CODE firmware is up to date.
I have notice during the update than first, the version 1.41 is installed (MCU firmware 1.41) and just after a second update is launched installing the version 1.11 (DSP firmware 1.11)
Is it the regular behavior ?
After the update I still have troubles on bluethooth pairing, even if I read this problem should be solved by the update.
Thanks for your help
My son has a Code 25 and the preset knob stopped working i had a look at it last night and tried the firmware update from the web site now it wont do anything and just says check USB. has anyone had this problem or have a solution.
thanks in advance
Promises, promises ... "we'll fix it soon"; " bluetooth issues will be addressed in future firmware updates"; " USB recording issues will be looked into"; AND, a 2-way footswitch will be available for Code 25/50 users when Code 100 is released. Am I alone in my disappointment for Marshall's seemingly apathetic (non) responses to purchasers of their "not ready for prime time" digital products?!?!?! I really wanted a Marshall Amp after 45 years as a Fender user. My mistake. I should have known better. Useless, unsupported, glitched, buggy, unreliable, etc., etc., etc. What say you Marshall in an attempt to save any reputation you thought you had?!?!?!?
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 was using the usb connection to record on Audacity. The guitar I was using was a Fender Strat with noiseless pups. I found that the signal stregth was really low and the only way I could get a decent recorded signal was to turn up the master volume to an unbearable level and was close to getting a stern talking to from my better half. I then tried the same process but used some headphones and this sorted the level issue so it recorded a strong signal. There was still a bit of crackle on the recording but much improved from the last firmware release.
I then recorded some acoustic guitar without headphones. This was a martin DRs1 with a stock fishman pup. Signal strength was really good and the quality was great. No hum or hiss or crackle.
Great to hear others experiences.
Tried to update my firmware and tried three cables. None are even recognizing the amp on multiple computers. Tried to reset the settings on the amp and nothing helped. It seems as if the USB port is not working at all.
I can download and run the firmware updater on my Win 10 laptop - it then asks me to connect my CODE 25 amp. I connect the amp using a USB cable - then I see the message "An error occurred: An error occurred getting the device information from your CODE. Please try switching your amp off, and then switching it back on again."
I switch it off and on - no good. Same problem. I connect the CODE amp before running the firmware utility - same result. So I don't even know what firmware is currently in there. Is this solvable? BTW - the USB cable works, as my Marshall CODE Live Editor has connected to the amp using it.
wont start after i plug in amp with usb
The inability to record using USB makes this product close to a sham. A base feature which is broken really insults your users and is killing sales. Get this fixed now, please, before your costs include my solicitor.
