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.
firstly, i am disappointed with the code. this amp seems like its still at test phase, its to buggy for a release. would expect marshall to only release a new product unless its 100% reliable.
connecting ios devices to code is always problematic. very unstable.
my main problem now is updating firmware. cant update in chrome. i have midi capability approved for marshall but keep getting midid disabled error even though i clearly have midi enabled.
tried opera, and the midi is working and the code is coming up as connected. i get as far as a message stating that firmware is updating with a status bar and percentage marker. doesnt update! stays at 0% and never moves. left it overnight and still 0% when i woke.
i have spent more time messing about with the problems with this amp than playing guitar. do i need to sell this and just buy a guitar interface? maybe
also, when using this amp through garageband there is no dedicated clean preset to use with garageband or other AU. basically it goes into garageband with a marshall preset and then the other AU preset is on top of the marshall preset. ideally this amp should include a straight clean unprocessed preset to work with other software AU's. i really do think people need to consider a good quality guitar interface before purchasing this amp. its very restricitve and unreliable. if you are not gigginG i dont see the point in this amp.
CAN SOMEONE HELP ME WITH THE FIRMWARE ISSUE ASAP!
