I have just bought the Marshall Code 100 which I was really excited about having read the description and watched the demo videos. The amp does sound amazing, but yesterday, on the first occasion that I actually tried the amp during a rehearsal, I was shocked to discover that when I step on the provided footswitch to change presets (like activate one with distortion or heavy delay), mid-song, the flow of the sound broke, there was a moment of silcence before it switched to the next preset. I've been trying to research this on the Internet, but have only found 2 instances of it being addressed, no one talks about this in review videos or blogs. This baffles me - how is (mostly) everyone ok with this?
This effectively makes it impossible to use the built-in effects of the amp, which is exactly what its main outstanding feature is. Why have a 100 presets when you can't switch mid-song? Are guitarists only supposed to use the Code family to select the main sound they want for a certain song, then keep using pedals for changes mid-song?
I'm extremely disappointed, since the built-in effects were the main reason I went for this amp - I wanted to use this as both an amp and a multi-effect board to some extent. Is there any fix for this? A firmware update maybe, or does the separately-sold Code pedal make a difference?
Seriously considering returning it at this point.
Hi! On Marshall's official website, the description says that the PEDL-91010 pedal has indicator lights. Mine doesn't. I saw that in others they don't have it either. What happens?
hey there everyone,
im kinda new to the looping scene and bought a boss rc 5 looping station for my code 25 but when i plug them in i wont get any sound..
is there something i am doing wrong or is it just not possible to add a loop pedal to the code 25?
btw i dont have any other pedals or the marshall footswitch
hoping someone can help me out!
My pedal one day works fine, other day don't work at all!? I don't see any hardware damage. Please help me. I don't know what to do! :(
Hello, I'm currently using fender lt50 with fender MGT4 footswitch. If I buy Marshall Code 50 will this footswitch work? Just for changing to channels from clean to distortion.. I found a solution in a Reddit video. And I download that video to my computer by using Reddit video downloader.
Is there away to turn off tuner mode? I do not use it and sometimes I go into it by accident.
I am not able to use the product in a minimally satisfactory way due to the following problems and difficulties:
- It is not possible to change the order of patches saved in either the hardware or the mobile application. There is no way to back up the saved patch set;
- The foot controller only controls the patches of blocks 1, 2 and 3. I explain: the FS only handles A1, A2, A3, up to J1, J2 and J3, which totals only 30 patches out of the 100 available. It is not possible to handle patches numbers 4 to 10, 14 to 20, 24 to 30, 34 to 40, etc.
- The unit is crashing during patch editing directly on the hardware (I have videos with the evidence).
Marshall Team, we need your support to resolve this, please! Thanks!
I need help with the code footswitch

thanks in advance for the tutorial for me, tye moron.
Hi i have a set of combined issues with my Code 50 with the 4 button footswitch
First of, love the products!
But my issue with it is major! I cannot set any preset on my footswitch, It seems so easy on the tutorials but mine just keeps on switching back to the preset that already was on the button (1,2 or 3). I do as followed. I chose the preset i want on ex.button 1, so i hold the "store/exit" button for 2 seconds and then i push the 1 button on the footswitch. But it only changes back to the preset it WAS. So no changes. When i HOLD the "Store/Exit" button for too long (3a4 sec) then it says "stored" and then no sounds comes out of the amp anymore, i can push the REV and AMP buttons and the LED light up. But no sound! The footswitch also then doesnt butch. I have to restart the AMP to get it to work again.
I tried to update the firmware but it already was up-to-date so i reinstalled the latest firmware again. I also tried to reset the AMP back to the factory reset but the problem still exists.
Hallo ich habe das Problem das sich der Footswitch ab und zu wie aufhängt, verdrücke ich mich fängt er an die Banks durchzuzählen und hört nicht mehr auf, oder wechselt auf eine zahl und lässt sich nicht mehr zurückstellen, so das ich wieder zu den Presets komme.
Nur ein Neustart des AMPs hilft das er wieder funktioniert.
Sprich AMP ausschalten warten bis die Lichter des Footswitches ausgehen, und dann wieder Einschalten.
Habt ihr solch ein Problem auch schon einmal gehabt oder eine Idee was das sein könnte.
Dr. Google mag mir da leider auch nicht weiter helfen.
Mein AMP Marshall Code 100 Head
J'ai un ampli CODE 50 et je viens d'acheter un footswitch "basique" 2 caneaux (eagletone FS202) avec Commutation verrouillée (loquet) pour la sélection de canal ou d'effet.
Le bouton n ° 1 permet de passer d'un PRESET à l'autre dans l'ordre décroissant uniquement.
Le bouton n ° 2 ne produit aucun effet.
Comment attribuer une fonction à chaque bouton de mon Footswitch? Cela peut-il se faire sur le CODE 50? Est-ce directement sur le Footswitch sachant que le mien n'a pas de réglage apparent?
Dois-je acheter le Footswitch Marshall?
--------------------------- Quelques jours plus tard ...
J'ai finalement acheté le Footswitch Marshall !
Merci à tous ceux qui ont consacré un peu de temps à répondre
owned a code 25 for a while now but only really started using it during lockdown but have to say I'm really impressed. I'm just using it for living room playing and connected to my DAW as a way of laying down ideas but seriously, it's REALLY good.
For context, I've played guitar for 27 years and working in live music has been my primary source of income (pre lockdown....) for around 17 years. I'm usually a live-sound engineer and tour manager and occasionally fill in the gaps with some guitar-teching. I'm uk-based but have international clients, mostly guitar-based, playing mostly academy sized venues but have done major festivals worldwide and one short stint of an arena tour. The point here is not to blow my whistle, simply to say I've spent a lot of time being exposed to all manner of amps and modelling.
I own a line 6 helix and while the CODE isn't as flexible with regards to I/O, I genuinely feel like it's amp-modelling, especially for crunch, fuzzy or blown out tones, blows the Helix out of the water. Not that I'm as likely to use metal tones or had much cause to tweak them but I've noticed those kind of presets can sound a little thin. Also, higher gain sounds in general could benefit from a graphic EQ somewhere in the modelling chain, as it can be prone to squeak at frequencies usually outside of a regular amps range, presumably because of the full-range nature of the cab.
So, my query is, is there any chance that the CODE range is likely to get any substantial firmware updates or maybe 2nd generation hardware that could bring additional functionality/Pro level durability and a decent footswitch... I'm impressed that you've managed to get that much functionality out of a mono-jack but a few extra switches or even just midi connectivity for use with after market footswitched to access would open the amp right up.
Personally, I'd love to see one capable of more complex I/O routing i.e. the ability to record your dry input to DAW over usb and similarly, route from the DAW to the amp input for re-amping.
Midi I/O and an xlr input with phantom and a decent sounding pre would make it a nice little hub for a solo recording setup.
Anyway, great work Marshall/Softube, really hope you develop the line further.
I left the F/S aside for a few days and today when i decided to use it just stoped responding.
The display shows A1 sometimes it twinkles, sometimes dont. But It doenst responds when i press the buttons.
I press ALL the F/S buttons and nothing happens!!!
I didnt drop it or nothing similar, the F/S is kinda new i bought it in June, the F/S conditions is visually intact.
Am i forgetting something?
Things that i've tried already:
- Factory reset my Code 50
- Factory reset my F/S
Marshall CODE 50
When playing, randomly my code 50 will lose volume. I can restore the volume to normal levels by stepping on a button on the footswitch but then it will cut back out over and over. How do i fix this? Is there an update i can do? I have swapped the cable for the footswitch and my input. This is incredibly frustrating when trying to get through a rehersal session. Pleaae help!!!!!
Are there anywhere on internet Marshall Code and footswitch 91009 manuals in polish language? English is available with no problems. Regards, Jacek
Hi all! I'm building a new pedalboard and was considering getting this footswitch... Anybody who has one, want to measure it for me? Thanks!
I recently bought a Marshcall Code 50 and I have two old footswitches (a Behringer and a Boss Dual foot switch FS-6). All I want to be able to do is cycle between presets on the code. On both the footswitches the code only cycles backwards, and not forwards at all. Is there a setting on the code somewhere that I need to change so that I can cycle either way through the presets?
I just got a Code 4 button footswitch for my Code50 amp but it does not do anything. No lights, nothing. Do I need to do anything to the amp to get it going?
I bought a Code 25 and looking into possible solutions for a footswitch.
I only really need to change between two channels (or presets in case of a modelling amp). Basic functionality.
Has anyone used any other footswitches with a CODE, Marshall or other brands?
My footswitch stopped responding under the following scenario.
Marshall Code 50
Four button footswitch
Macbook pro connected via USB
Sound output set to Marshall Code
Playing Youtube videos through the amp and playing along
After a while, the footswitch stopped responding. I couldn't change banks or position within a bank.
Unplugging the USB cable seemed to get things going but footswitch stopped responding again shortly after.
Turning the amp off an on again resolved the issue.
