Ok i havent used my code for a while and decided to get it out and dust it off for a jam... I thought it most likely needed a firmware update so decided to plug it in to my pc. Ihad been through this process when i bought it so i didnt anticipate any problems LOL
So firstly it wouldnt detect the amp even though pc audio was being routed through it, anyhow got through the teething issues and enabled the midi thing as per instructions and then bam! amp went past the connected but and it showed the available firmware it was on 1.3 and showed 2 further updates to the current 1.4.
I started it and nothing happened. sat watching the dots fly by and absolutely nothing was going on. So after what seemed like hours i decided to cancel and try again and it would sometimes detect it, sometimes not sometimes stard to update, sometimes not and then i tried the last time and it all seemed to go well, i actually saw % numbers going up and then it stalled again and nothing happened. I left it for a good 45 minutes and still nothing, so i decided to cancel it again and try one last time.
only now the amp says the firmware version is 0.0 and it wont do anything. I am unable to factory reset even. It really should not be this difficult to update the damn firmware. I have been trying to do this for HOURS!
I ve got a helix hx I am trying to use for channel swap on the amp.
For all of the above the following applies:
- JVM footcontroller is disconnection
- JVM midi has been reset: its on MIDI channel 1
Boss ES5 (works)
I can get it working using a Boss ES5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YI65cgA4XI
Midi cable setup: Boss ES5 (out) > JVM (IN)
Also going from Boss through the helix (midi passthrough works).
Midi cable connection: Boss ES 5 (out) > Helix (IN) > Helix (out) > JVM
However, this is using Midi patch panel change. Not sure how this differs from MIDI CC?
Helix HX (not working)
For Helix im following this video : https://youtu.be/simaPS7dzLw?t=55
Midi cable connection: Helix (out) > JVM
Im using MIDI CC and following the table in JSH User manual.
channel : 1
Function: CC: 16
= clean channel, Orange mode.
I set the amp up so that the midi controller is BLINKING and it doesnt stop blinking: its not receiving the signal?
I feel like Im close to getting there.
I want to know if the midi foot controller Berhringer FCB 1010 is compatible in Marshall Code.
Currently my JVM410HJS squeals periodically. Initially this would only happen occasionally and I was still able to gig with it, but now it has become to frequent to use. It will do this even if unplugged from a guitar and will do it no matter which channel it is on. Channel switching does not stop it. I am not sure where to start. Am going to change out the tubes and reset the MIDI switch, but otherwise will have to travel a good distance to find a qualified tech. Anyone else ever had this issue?
I just got around to updating the firm ware on the code 100 thought as long as i had the amp connected to my pc via the usb cable I would check out the code editor and it would not respond looked at the manual casually and did not notice any mention of how to connect
dos this need to be acomplished using a midi to usb cable
i have tryed to get my pc to connect to my code50 amp.but it keeps telling me its not connected .need some help thank you
My CODE 25 connects to my PC via both through MIDI in Chrome and through the Firmware Update Utility but it refuses to do anything but sit there while the gold loading circle just spins and spins. I've left it for upwards of 30 minutes. I'm unable to click on check for updates or anything. Tried rebooting a few times, tried turning blutooth off while doing it, etc. My amps current version according to both the amp and the app is v1.3. Any suggestion on what to try? Should I do some kind of factory reset to the amp and try again? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
As a side note, I'm also unable to "download preset to amp" to test it out even though it's giving me the go ahead to do it on the preset site. I'm sure the issue is connected to being unable to update the firmware.
I have a Nov 2017 build, and have had this problem from the beginning...tried to work around it and it is now becoming unusable for me. In short, the amp responds fine when setting things up...but it it becomes inconsistant as the session wears on. Accepts commands and switches one time, then doesn't the next time, etc. I've seen others complaining of this on other forums. and have yet to see any definitive answer.
Is anyone using the PEDL-91016, and if so, does this wotk as advertised? Or is this a DSL midi issue?
I have an iPhone with google chrome installed but when I try to get a preset it says midi not available everything else on Bluetooth is working. Are you telling me I have to have a desk top instead of using my iPhone to directly get presets? So confusing!!
So, for the first time, I wanted to download a preset or “patch” off of the my.marshall site from another fellow Marshall lover. I clicked on the preset link from YOUTUBE, which took me to the Marshall user on MY MARSHALL. I utilized my iPhone so the default browser is SAFARI of course. I read that My.Marshall does not work with SAFARI so I downloaded CHROME to my iPhone which is version 71.0. When I went back to My. Marshall to save the preset to my Library I STILL got the MIDI IS NOT AVAILABLE notice on the bottom of my screen. I powered down my phone to restart thinking maybe I had to allow the Newly downloaded CHROME to “re-set” but still same thing MIDI IS NOT AVAILABLE. PLEASE ADVISE as this is SO FRUSTRATING!!!!! Thank you in advance....
I can use a Boss ES-5 to switch between Clean/Crunch/OD1/OD2 using program changes but sending MIDI CC#13 for the loop state works sometimes and CC#14 for the master volume select never works. Is anybody able to use Boss ES-5 or ES-8 MIDI to control the master volume select and loop state?
Has anyone tried using the Voodoo Ground pedal to operate the JVM410c/h?
hi, i wonder if there is away to dwonload presets through tablet or smart phone to the amp in wierless way ?
or the only way is to use pc midi ?
Due to an older brother, I began really listening to The Marshall Sound as early as 1972. Then he gave me my first guitar in 1976. I wouldn't put it down and learned open chords, power chords, scales, etc. Of course, seeing and hearing live from shows from KISS in 1977, and Ozzy with Randy Rhoades, through Def Leppard and many many others, but it was AC/DC's Back In Black, Hells Bells that did it for me. I found a full, used stack around 1984, and I was lucky the lady dealt with me, gave me a break and let me pay it out. Since I have owned different amps (Fender Vibroverb Custom with the Diaz mods, Peavey, etc), but I have also owned the 150W AVT, and even the cheaper, solid state MDFX 100W. These never came close to my first.
I JUST purchased a DSL100HR, I guess the new, revamped model. I love all the features, however, the footswitch reminds me of the MDFX or HDFX that has two buttons only on it. When I went to Marshall's main site, I found that the MIDI port is for a fantastic footswitch, which would allow me to do many, many things, without having to stop and turn knobs in the middle of a song.
Where can I purchase one of these and for how much? I live in Texas, in the United States. I had to sell the no longer in production Vibroverb Custom with the Cesar Diaz mods, which was my Pride and Joy (I met Stevie Ray Vaughan after a show on October 8, 1983, in South Dallas, and we began talking about Hendrix, he literally had to be pulled from me).
Please let me know where, how much, and how I can get one of these, please.

I`m trying to use my BOSS Gt-100 as a Midi controller to change channels on my JHS410H.
It works...but sometimes amplifier doesn`t change a channel.
Looks that it`s amp fault, because gt100 sends PC messages on each press.
I think that JVM gets sometimes confused because all messages out of GT100 comes in formula: 2xCC+1xPC.
Could you advice how to deal with it? Is there any option to change a firmware on JVM midi module to make communication more realiable?
can my Code 100h works with a standard midi footswitch? The Code 100h has a midi-usb but my Digitech Footstwitch has a standard-midi inteface: can i use an adaptor midistandard-midiusb?
I just got the upgraded DSL40cr. I love it. But my question is on Midi. I have used midi before, but with this amp can I use my Line 6 m9 multi effects unit which has midi implementation and assign different effects to different channels with this amplifier?
Hello, I would like to connect one of my PCs (OS linux) on a Marshall CODE 50 and take control via usb midi.
When I open /etc/dmmidi2 in read acces. Reading file char by char, I see information when I touch the buttons of the amp (PREFX, AMP, MOD, ...). I can find the information in CODE-Midi-Implementation-Chart-V2.1.pdf.
I usually get two or three bytes and cross it with the document.
But this frame is not in the form Start of Transmission> Header> Command> End of Transmission.
By against when I open /etc/dmmmidi2 in write access, I can not send any command.
After having turned on the amp, I sent the following sequence for RECALL PRESETS 05:
0xF0 0x00 0x21 0x15 0x7F 0x7F 0x7F 0x73 0x01 0x05 0xF7
or RECALL CURRENT SETTINGS:
0xF0 0x00 0x21 0x15 0x7F 0x7F 0x7F 0x72 0x01 0x00 0xF7
Start of Transmission> Header> Command> End of Transmission
This command does not seem to work. Is there an intermediary step?
Would it be possible to give me a typical sequence to the CODE or a document that will explain the procedure to operate (ON / OFF) one of the button (PREFX, AMP, MOD, ...) of the amp.
Thank you in advance.
i switch through my presets with the Marshall PEDL-91009, however, this pedalboard only has 3 switches and a bank switch, however i would like to have a pedalboard with more than 3 preset switch button for faster recall ... is there a solution (maybe via MIDI) , or a compatible footswitch that i am unaware of?
Hey all - new to the forums, new to Marshall amps and had a few questions about the Code 50 I just ordered that will be here in a day or so. I have played my guitars through my buddy's Code 50 and am familiar with editing the patches, tweaking the tones and getting the sounds that I want from the amp to fit my playing style. What I am not familiar with is the use of footswitch and any Midi capabilities it may have.
1) Can one use just a regular on/off type of old school footswitch to turn an effect or amp on/off or initiate a patch change? I have several old school footswitches I have successfully used on many different amps, albeit older amps, and it has always worked. Curious since the Marshall footswitch actually holds presets if anything like that would work.
2) As far as Midi goes, I come from a Line6 multi-effects world and know that many of their multi-effect units have the capability to control effects on/off/parameters and patch/bank switching via Midi commands. Does the Code software have anything like that if hooked up to a PC/Mac running a DAW that has the capability to send midi control commands to change patches/effects realtime during recording/playback.
Thanks for any input and excited to get this amp. I am a player of over 30 years and have only ever played through Crate amps for the past 20+ years that have finally given up and the cost to repair is more than new. Bash Crate all you want but they were loud and proud and with the right EQ/effects loops made some damn good musical sounds.
