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.
I just got a PEDL 91009 foot controller for my Code25. Impressed with how well it works and how useful it is (considering it connects with a normal guitar cable).
However the documentation for the 91009 is pretty poor and consists of a single sided page in the manual. I have found a few things that I can't find documented and I wonder if anyone else has found anything too.
Firstly, In the manual is says that in switch mode you can assign which blocks can be switched on and of with the three foot switches. This is great but what isn't clear in the manual is that this is universal and not per patch. i.e. if you assign button 3 to switch on the tuner then on every patch button 3 will swich on the tuner. It's the same with the tap tempo. So this means if you want the tuner available and tap tempo, then you can only switch on and off 1 effects module. Not the end of the world, but not clear in the manual. It's a shame there wasn't 2 buttons specifically for these functions.
Secondly. I had to look through this forum to find out how to reset the settings stored in the 91009, maybe it is documented somewhere in the manual. but I couldnt find it.
Thirdly. I discovered that if you are in switch mode (to switch on and off effects blocks in a patch). If you press and hold button 1 to 3 the 91009 changes to the patch stored in that bank position, but remains in switch mode. This means you don't have to come out of switch mode, change to the new patch in that bank and then go back into switch mode. May be useful for some people, but I couldnt find this in any manuals either.
Overall an impressive foot controller (for what it is). Has anyone else found out anying more it can do?
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 have Marshall CODE50 and PEDL-91010 (2-way switch). I have the latest 1.44 firmware update installed, but my pedal does not work properly. For some reason when I press the switch to go down a preset it goes up a preset or just does nothing. Sometimes it works, but that does not happen very often. I've opened the footswitch and the circuit seems too simple to be faulty and by the way my amp acts when I press the down switch it looks like it is the problem with the firmware.
I need help with the code footswitch
all I want to do is click one footswitch button to go from one preset(clean) to a overdrive preset
like set the code 50 on 87 then hit the switch to like 50 or whatever.
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
is it possible to save differents preset on the same bank of the switchfoot instent to use just one and switch from delay to distorcion? ..for example... i found a very good distorcion preset of nirvana but doesn't have a clear sound on it, and another nirvana preset which has a good clear sound but not good distorcion, i would like to save one of them in bank A1 and the otherone in A2...is that possible?...many thanks
Hi everybody, no question but just a statement (just to show how satisfied I am with this amp, but also maybe to encourage other users): I LOVE THE CODE50!
I own two Code50's, one for rehearsels and one for gigs - so one is the clone of the other. Today I had a feeling I should "finetune" some of my already established presets due to a new guitar I recently bought. And what can I say? Everything worked as expected: The amp (sw-version 1.44) connected with the phone (iPhone XR, iOS 14.4, Gateway version 1.5), I was able to change presets via footswitch or phone, downloaded presets and edited them - as always absolutely no problems or issues.
Thanks to Marshall for an absolutely satisfying and reliable, easy to transport and always great sounding product! 'nuff said!
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.
how to upload a preset from MyGateway to the Amp ?
... not to the Gateway library because this will then not be possible to control via footswitch.
there are also patches under marshallcode.tools from where a direct upload to the Amp is possible via USB.
however, not ideal if this would have to be done twice separately (?)
the library overview in MyGateway is ideal but I can´t find a way how to move presets from MyGateway onto the Amp.
Many thanks in advance for your help
-> meanwhile figured it out: drag & drop to Gateway Library, then in the App under the individual Preset, select both Amp + Library, press save.
While attempting to set up the footswitch (more help needed there), I somehow duplicated 01 So American over 92 19x12 and it is gone. I liked both of them and have been unable to get back 02, even with factory reset of the amp and footswitch.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Can you advise please ? How can I configure two presets/chanels for one knob in the footswitches? I need to switch two presets with oneknob?
for example : Rhythm guitar to solo (different chanel with the addition of an effect through FX Loop) and back to the Rhythm mode?
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?
Is there any option to change volume with the PEDL 90008 ?
I know that it is possible to change volume by editing different presets.
But I want to know if there is a way to change the volume with other methods.
Would be great if there were an FX to change volume in switch mode.
I was wondering if the creator of the KASHMIR preset would be interested in also creating the FLANGER part for KASHMIR using all the current preset settings (amp, cabinet, speaker etc) as a complimentary preset for the turnaround section of the song. I believe, from forums, that a preset will switch better (Marshall CODE footswitch) if the preset has the same amp, speaker and or cabinet setting as it takes away the millisecond delay of switching between amps in a particular preset. Look forward to your answer and or creation of said beasty.
Can I save downloaded user presets to my footswitch and how???
Using the Code 50
Hi, I havent had any problems with my 2 Code100h that i run in stereo in my marshall 1960v cabs, in any way until now, besides the usual dirty pots. I am trying to save the "in amp" tuner as a patch or an effect on a patch as the instructional video states. I do have the upgraded footswitch. The only way ive found to acceas the tuner by footpedal is by turning one of the switch mode choices into the tuner, which makes every single patch have the tuner as the switch mode option. Kinda defeats the purpose. Is there any way to set the tuner as a patch by itself or as a switch mode option on just 1 patch and not all of them?
