I turned on bluetooth on my phone then initiated the bluetooth feature on my code100. find the amp in the It found the amp on my phone so I connected to it and the blue light on the amp quit flashing indicating that they are synced together. When I open the gateway app on my android phone (samsung S20E) it will not find the amp in the menu section of the app. I see the blue tooth symbol there with the word CODE next to it and it says not connected. There is nothing next to the Amps Detected: and when I scan for an amp it turns gray for a few seconds and then back to green. Same thing when i switch between the phone and amp icon in the bottom left corner. when on the phone icon i have presets when I switch to the amp Icon I get nothing displayed. I do have audio .from phone to amp and that s what it says in the blue tooth section in my phone. It says that the code V020150FDU connected for audio
This issue is driving me crazy. My Code 50 used to work with my iphone and ipad, now it refuses to connect and I always get the above message.
I have performed the following:
1. Forgot bluetooth connection on both devices
2. Deleted iphone app and re-installed.
3. Re-paired and tried to connect with same issues,
4. Formed factor preset of amp with no luck.
I know the blueotth connects as I can play music through my amp from phone, I just cannot connect to update any presets.
Any solutions would be greatfully received, am getting so frustrated with this product.
Salve! Non riesco a collegare il code 25 al sito My.marshall per provare i preset disponibili. L'appplicazione gateway si collega e la luce azzurra si blocca riconoscendo il Bluetooth.
Dal sito My.marshall mi dice codice non connesso.... anche se riesco ad usare l'applicazione Gateway e risulto connesso.
Qualche suggerimento? Sto usando Crome aggiornato con smartphone Android.
I have had a chance to spend a few days with the Marshall code 25 and I would like to share with you a few of my findings. I have played guitar professionally for over 30 years and have had all makes and models of guitars and amps in my time, but in general I would have killed for the equipment available to guitarist today.
This is the point where I look at the Code 25 and think “that looks like fun”. I have a few amps kicking about already, mostly gigging volume amps but I also have a Blackstar ID-Core 40, so this would be in reality what I would compare the Code 25 against.
Firstly my experience with the amp and a look around these forums makes one thing apparent. This amp is well named because it is a bit of an enigma.Out of the box I would consider the amplifier not fit for purpose this is really down to a few reasons.
Firstly, some of the presets are just absolutely terrible, I mean some of the worst patches I’ve ever heard on anything, “Small combo” and the “Brit” overdrive amps for instance are shockingly bad. You can make the excuse that all amp and effects units come with bad presets. However this is usually down to strange or weird effects to give bizarre sounds to show off effects but that nobody would ever use in a musical context. However some patches (such as Small Combo) are just basic amp modelling with no effects and are still absolutely terrible. Maybe these sound better on the 50 or 100, but if that’s the case remove them from the 25 it just gives a bad impression.
Secondly, the amp is stupidly loud. I don’t know if this is a marketing decision, but Marshall should look at its target demographic. This thing is a small bedroom practice amp, maybe at a push for some very small live situations, but that is it. Why make the thing so loud? If you need to use this amp near anything over half volume you have bought the wrong amp it’s as simple as that.
Thirdly, some of the modelling is not all it could be with digital artefacts (in the low end in particular), and a fizzy noise gate that for some reason is on patches where there is absolutely no need to have it as the patch is pretty quiet. Once again this is not a professional gigging or recording product and it should be judgged accordingly.
The last bad point I would say against this amp is the tuner, both onboard and on the app are two of the least responsive and wildly inaccurate tuners I have ever seen. Really not even close to tune! Put this down to another marketing tick box.
OK, now the good points.
It seems pretty well made and solid for what it is.
I like the size and weight, ideal for a bedroom practice amp.
I like the complete range of controls on the amp, and how you can do everything on the amp that you can do on the app, and it’s easy to do. Great user interface design work.
I like the Bluetooth features and the app. I know people have had problems with Bluetooth, but both my IOS and Android phones connected right away and are stable. I can stream music no problem from outside the house or in other rooms with no issues.
I like having 100 presets to store all the patches I could want (My Blackstar only had 6, and you can only have 1 for each model).
The headphone socket sounds OK, but if I wanted that as a primary feature I would have just bought headphone amp with effects.
I don’t use the recording over USB feature. If I did I wouldn’t expect something this cheap to be amazing. Once again if you want this you probably have bought the wrong product, and are in the wrong price bracket.
I like the cost, its amazing what it does for the money.
I like the sounds, now that I’ve got rid of the awful ones.
It looks pretty cool.
It’s a Marshall.
To make this amp useable, I basically had to do the following:
Overall I like the amp and doing just these 2 thing make it much more of a pleasure to use. The volume level are more what they should be for a product of this type and I don’t ever hear any of the awful patches (there are plenty of good ones).
Maybe other people can share their first experiences or tips with the Code 25?
Marshal code 25 has stopped syncing with the cloud. But there is a bluetooth connection.
There are 169 presets saved in the my gateway cloud that is some are repeated and cannot be deleted. Help me please!
I have a Marshall Code 50 running MCU version 1.44 and Gateway (Android version 1.5.5) on a Samsung Galaxy S9+ running the latest OS. I can bluetooth pair to the amp and play music, but can not connect to the amp to change my presets from the library. I have reloaded the latest firmware on the amp, deleted and reinstalled the Gateway app, paired and unpaired several times. Nothing seems to work. I even grabbed my old Galaxy S7 Edge phone and that Gateway app on it does the same thing. Does my amp need to be serviced for Bluetooth connectivity?
I just received a Marshall Code 25 as a gift and I am new to guitar playing and using an amp. So I have 2 questions actually.
1. In the User Presets section, what does the X over the amp (code not available) exactly mean?
2. I managed to connect the bluetooth on my iphone with the amp, and it works fine, but everytime I turn my amp and the app on my phone on, my amp doesn't show in the amp. So I end up having to sync the bluetooth every single time I turn it on, let it search for my amp, and then I can get started. Is there some reason why my amp doesn't stay in the app?
I own the Marshall CODE 100H and CODE 212 cabinet.
I really love this amp, but I find the MY GATEWAY web page interface to be somewhat awkward to use.
The following are issues that I would like to see changed.
All references to the MY LIBRARY list are referring to the list below the MY GATEWAY List on the MY GATEWAY web page.
1) On the My GATEWAY web page, the preset list at the top is arranged by columns (as it should be), but the MY LIBRARY list below that is arranged by rows.
This makes it very awkward to find a preset in the MY LIBRARY section.
The MY LIBRARY section should be arranged by columns as well.
2) There is no indication in the MY LIBRARY section on the MY GATEWAY tab whether a preset is or isn’t in the MY GATEWAY list.
This makes it awkward to know which presets from the MY LIBRARY are used in the MY GATEWAY
I would suggest adding the MY GATEWAY preset number to the MY LIBRARY list as the indicator.
3) There is no indication in either list whether a preset has been Modified or is a Factory Preset
(must copy to MY LIBRARY section below and then edit to know if it was changed-not as convenient as it could be if it was marked as Factory Preset or Modified in the list)
4) There is no way to compare presets in the MY GATEWAY list vs the same named preset in the MY LIBRARY list.
(And a preset can be changed in the mobile app or on the amp and synced to the web,
but the change doesn’t get applied to the same named preset in the MY LIBRARY list,
so the MY LIBRARY presets become inconsistent with the same named preset in MY GATEWAY.
And, there’s no indication that the same named preset in the MY GATEWAY list is now different from the MY LIBRARY version.
Must be constantly manually checking / updating the MY LIBRARY list.
There should either be a “Date Changed” field in the Edit Preset dialog box so you can know which one is the most recent, or
There should be a prompt or checkbox to update the MY LIBRARY preset as well.
There should be a way to select two presets and then select “Compare”.
The compare screen should highlight the differences.
5) Renaming a preset in the MY GATEWAY section doesn’t also rename it in the MY LIBRARY.
Requires either deletion of the preset in the MY GATEWAY list and re-addition of the renamed preset,
or edit same named preset in both lists. There should be a prompt or checkbox to update the MY LIBRARY preset as well.
6) Multiple presets can be named the same thing but have different configurations (really bad idea!)
This makes it hard to know which one is the most up to date.
This should be prohibited.
Copying a preset to the Library should pop up a warning message that a preset with that name already exists, and ask to replace or rename it differently.
7) Preset settings can only be viewed / edited in the MY LIBRARY section but not the MY GATEWAY section.
This means that you have to copy a preset from the MY GATEWAY list to the MY LIBRARY section first.
Then hunt down where it went in the MY LIBRARY list in order to edit it, Edit it, and then copy it back to the MY GATEWAY list.
That seems to be a lot more awkward than it ought to be. It should be possible to view or edit preset settings from either list.
8) It would be nice if a preset could be marked as a favorite.
9) It would be nice if all Factory Presets had audio preview samples.
10) It would be useful to have a way to record a short audio sample via bluetooth on the mobile app and then be able to save it automatically to SoundCloud and add the url to the preset.
11) Where do I find backing tracks for to use with the amp?
I recently purchased a CODE 25 and love it. In the Gateway app I see a different list of presets when connected via Bluetooth versus not. Any suggestions of how to correct?
When not connected I can see presets like Purple Plexi and Sweet Jubilee. Would like to check them out.
Hi I have a CODE 100H head/cab and a CODE 100 combo both with the latest firmware re-installed from Marshall and both have this issue, i.e. the amp very oftenn completely freezes when I save a preset.
Steps to reproduce:
- Modify any patch on the front panel
- 50% of the times the amp seems to freeze. The preset is saved but you can no longer change preset and there is no sound coming out.
The same happens if you modify a patch from the iOS app via bluetooth and then save it from there.
It's REALLY frustrating and I can't believe I didn't find anything on this forum under the "crash on save" keywords. Seeing it happens on both of my CODE units it much be a software bug, I don't think it has anything to do with my units.
Anyone else has seen this problem?
Hi! I have an issue while trying to transfer dowloaded presets to my Code25. It occures both usb and bluetooth connections. On a usb connection i click the “amp” icon on a preset, it’s name appears on a Code screen. I push and hold store button on amp, “saved” appears. But then Code becomes freeezed, it does not react on button push etc. when i switch it off and then switch on it works fine, preset available on amp. The same issue appears when i try to transfer presets using Gateway app. What I do wrong?
Running V1.43 firmware.
I have followed all instructions and can not get the iPad 6 to connect in Gateway app.
It, however "pairs" just fine Bluetooth wise on the iPad 6!
AND Gateway works well on my iPhone 5, switches presets and everything.
So I know I am doing this right and the Marshall code 100 Head is responding via Bluetooth (with my iPhone 5) but NOT with the iPad 6.
Edited: Its the damnedest thing. I removed and reinstalled the app on my iPad 6 at least 8 times with the same results.
Then I reinstalled and paired the "9th" time, and it worked!!!!
I can turn the 100 Code head amp off, and back on and it still connects.
I'm glad it works now, but I dunno what I did differently.
I've owned the new Code 50 for only a few days so I'm still a novice navigating through all the features. I'm just getting into using the My Gateway app from my Iphone and noticed when I'm connected to the amp through Bluetooth and I have the "blue" presets showing on the app which are completely different than the presets I see on the amp when I'm not connected through the Gateway app. So for example when connected through bluetooth I see preset 00 as EL34 Heaven on both my phone and on my amp, and when I'm not connected through bluetooth preset 00 is JTM Chill. I like the settings on the gateway app much better than what I have for presets when just using the amp without bluetooth. I guess what I'm trying to do is find the easiest way to say replace 00 JTM Chill with 00 EL34 Heaven so I can have 00 EL34 Heaven on the amp without having to connect using the gateway app? I've look at other questions and cant seem to find this answer. Is this the sync function?? Thanks in advance.
I have successfully synced some presets onto the Gateway App on my phone and can use them when my phone is connected to my Code 50 amp via bluetooth. Is there anyway to overwrite the presets on the amp with presets on the Gateway app, so those presets are available without connecting to my phone? Thanks!
I connected my Code 50 to my laptop via bluetooth, but the my.marshall presets says "CODE not connected". I tried connecting via USB, but the amp has a goofy connector that standard USB cables do not connect to. Also - I can connect via the Gateway app on my phone, but the presets I add to My Library do not show up (even though it says that they have synced).
Hi I have had this Marshall Code 100 for a few weeks now, mucking around with it to try and figure it out and finding it to be a little user unfriendly. What I want to do is to change a single preset to what it was originally (eg factory setting) without doing a factory reset and losing all my other changed presets. I cannot find any joy anywhere about this. Also, when I look at the list of 100 presets online (there are a few lists going around in chat forums and also in the gateway section of this website) I can only ever find the 100 presets that are on the phone gateway app and not the list that was originally on the amp (for example on my amp when I factory reset it, 00 is JTM Chill, 01 is "So American" etc, whereas my gateway library has 00 as EL34 Heaven and 01 as Plexi Classic). So I cannot find the actual standard amp preset list anywhere online or within the Gateway app.
My questions boil down to three:
1. How do I restore an individual preset to what it originally was (without performing a factory reset)?
2. How do I even know what the original preset was called?
3. Say I connect my smartphone to the amp via gateway and bluetooth. If you click on the arrow on the right hand side of one of the presets in the library, it takes you to another screen. In that screen it has an amp section and a library section, with 2 small boxes you can tick next to each. What is the purpose of this screen and ticking the boxes? Like what can you actually change on this screen is it just the name of the preset or can you replace a preset that is on the amp with one that is in the gateway library?
Needless to say I am very confused and was hoping to be way ahead by this stage. Please help!
When I connect Phone via bluetooth, I can not see a presets, only "tab to sync" when I tab it is shows this one and one or two more, but the rest is still tab to sync. Next connecting and all presets list is tab to sync again. Code do not want to synchronized with gateway. Do you have any idea how to change that?
Bluetooth connection is not very good in my opinion.
Bleutooth signal code 25 is ok, samsung s8 detects it alright.
But when i use the gateway android app it doesn't connect altough it shows in app as detected.
Is there a patch upcomming for the amp code series?
my code worked ok with my galaxy 5 but i got a new moto z running android 7.1.1 and it will connect to bluetooth but will not connect in gateway. when i push scan for amps it never finds the code amp and yes i pushed the bluetooth buttons on the amp. in the gateway app the in the bottom left corner the amp/phone icon is missing for switching from amp to phone presets. the screen has the blue preset shown but the library has them in yellow. the worst part is that the display on the code amp is not working. it is barely readable. just yellow with the black barely visable. so without being able to program it using the display it doesn't work with my phone either. i have owned a lot of marshalls and still have a bunch but i have never been so dissapointed as i am with this piece of crapp. can't use it live because of the dropouts when switching channels and yea i know about using the same amps and settings in all the presets but that is unaceptable. i have the footswitch and thats a disaster too. one little slip like accidently pushing two buttons at the same time or too fast or twice freezes the amp or reprograms it. yea really cool turning it off and back on in the middle of a song. i tried using it live once and it was a disaster. never again. so i love the tone for recording but now i can't even do that because it wont connect bluetooth and the display is almost dead so i can't program it.
Presets need to flow easier between the different management areas.
(Reading the following is really only cumbersome, because that's how cumbersome it is to manage CODE.)
Copying one by one between amp and phone is really cumbersome.
How about an option to copy all 100 presets (or sections) between amp and phone? Both ways.
I want my amp to have the same presets as my phone.
(Others can still have the option the way it is laid out, but I don't see how managing amp and phone separately is useful unless someone really needs 200 different presets in one session.)
I like to have my preset sequenced in a way that makes sense. Artists, cleans, crunch, OD, Amps, or new additions squeezed next to existing ones. Others may sequence by set list or bands. If I shuffle presets on the computer/gateway, then the phone syncs this new sequence, and the amp does not match. Gets confusing.
Additionally, if the footswitch is assigned from the amp, then I have to copy new presets from phone to amp and even reassign to footswitch. Too many steps.
"Just use the presets on the phone and forget amp presets" would be an answer, but what about footswitch? and what about dead or forgotten phones?
Easy (automatic?) sync (with on/off for this auto/sync) between phone and amp, would allow everyone to use the amp (and footswitch) without constantly pulling out the phone and pairing to have presets from the phone available. Bluetooth drains batteries.
Btw, any phone sounds come on the speaker when playing because my iphone6 sees the amp as a headphone. So the presets need to be on the amp for any gigs.
Another footswitch suggestion:
A setting or function where the first 30 presets (01-30, without 00) are loaded into the 10 banks on the footswitch automatically? Then I only have to manage my presets within the 100 and everything else is assigned automatically?
