I recently purchased a CODE25 to use as a practice amp. It looked like something fun I could play around with.
The first few days it was ok as I was only using some of the factory presets. Trouble started as soon as I edited one or saved an online preset. The sound dissappeared (speaker) and the display got very faint. Restarting the amp made the display ok again but still no speaker sound. I reset the presets (hold down Amp while turning it on) and that seemed to do the trick.
But soon after the sound issue started again. I reset the amp presets, re-installed the firmware, but I only had sound for 2-3 seconds after boot, then nothing.
I have now discovered that if I plug in a headphone (which has sound) and then unplug it, I have speaker sound again. This makes me even more confused. I haven't tested long enough to confirm that this will work over time.
I see that there is a lot of posts regarding sound issues and requests for a long overdue firmware. But have anyone found out any new tricks to overcome the issues?
I sent an email to Servicedesk last week but haven't recieved a response of any kind.
is there any known workaround to overrule the output level of the headphone output?
may be another Firmware from non EU countries or hidden functions or cheats in current Firmware?
I know, its possible to connect a separate headphone amp, but that is not my intension to do.
thanks in advance,
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.
