I have several custom presets in my Gateway (via my PC at my.marshall.com). I synchronized my PC with the Gateway App on my Android phone and all the new presets show up (so far, so good). The problem is that when I turn on the Code 100 amp, all of my presets (in the Gateway Library on my phone) get reset to the default presets.
If I turn off the amp and re-sync, all of my custom presets show up again. When I turn on the amp, they all get reset to default values.
I updated the firmware on my CODE 100 and tried several different startup configurations, but nothing works.
Why is the amp overwriting the presets on my Gateway App?
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
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?
I've registered today on my.marshall.com and added some presets to "My Library" section. The thing is when I go to "My Gateway" section on this site, so I can add the presets I've just added to the library of presets list that I see on the APP on my phone (Android) so I can play them, I see the following message:
You haven't synced any presets from a Gateway app yet.
Click here to download the Marshall Gateway app now.
I've already downloaded the Gatewayy APP on my phone, and I'm actually logged in my phone too, and by the way I've synced my phone with the "Sync Now" button on "My Marshall" section on the APP many times just in case. On the other hand when I enter "My Gateway" section, the "My Library" list of presets I've just added it's there at the bottom of the page, but I can't move them to the 100 preset list that is already loaded in my phone like I've seen on tutorial videos (the 100 presets aren't there). Seems my.marshall.com can't recognize the syncing. I've logged in and out of my.marshall.com and on the app, with no effect; it doesn't make a difference if the amp is on or off. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
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?
*****UPDATE : PROBLEM SOLVED. OR MORE CORRECTLY, NO PROBLEM TO BEGIN WITH. APPARENTLY THIS IS NORMAL AS ALL OF THE PRESETS HAVE BEEN SAVED TO MY AMP. NO REPLIES NECESSARY. THANKS! ****
I'm a new Code 50 owner and am just getting started. I bought mine used from Guitar Center so I don't have the manual at hand and am running into an issue. I have added a ton of user created presets to my library on the gateway page, and synched them to my android app. When the app is connected to the amp I can see the presets when in gateway mode (blue dials).
Here's the problem I'm having: When I try to save the preset to the amp, I open the preset in the library, click on the arrow to the right, and put an x in the amp box. When I click save however, the amp box unchecks and I'm back where I started.
I'm not sure if this is a glitch or I'm missing a step somewhere. Can anyone help me out?
Hello, just purchased a Code 50 and so far I'm very happy with the amp but there are still a few things unclear with the Presets and Gateway. I have connection with my laptop or via android, that all works fine. I've downloaded a few presets from the website and want to use them on the amp.
- The standard 100 presets are there when I connect to the amp. If I want to add new presets do I have to override one of the standard presets? I thought 200 was the limit?
- And another thing, if for example I upload a new preset to the amp the name of the preset doesn't show in the display.
I tried the manual or Youtube tutorials but none are very clear on this subject.
Just got my CODE 100 2x12 and I can't seem to sync up the presets I've chosen on my PC, I'm using my Android device and sometimes they're there, sometimes incomplete, sometimes reverts back to factory. The android app seems faulty. If I hook the amp up to my PC will it always remember the library presets? I don't want to rely on PC or Android to remember my hard work.
I have a Code 100 and my instructor has Code 25 amps. I neeed a consise explaination of how to copy a preset from a Code 25 to my Code 100. So far, the tutorials and FAQs have been more confusing than helpful. I have the Marshall Android app and can connect to the Codes but have not method of copying setup from one to another.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
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.
I've modified about 50 presets on my code 50 amp. I have recently installed the gateway app on my android phone and works well with teh amp.
I want to backup al my modified preset from my amp to another place, for instance on my marshall cloud.
When I connect my phone and the gate way amp and I select to save the preset and make sure that save to libary option is selected I can save the preset. When I logged on the my marshall nothing of the modified names is visible on my marshall. Also when I checked the library on the phone nothing has changed.
I only can see my modified presets when I connect to the amp. (Golden modify buttons)
My question: How can I backup all my modified presets to a cloud or locally on my phone in a easy user friendly way ?
Just got a code 25, loaded Marshall gateway on my samsung J3 android phone and noticed when you choose a patch from the library the threshold setting shown on early videos now appears to have morphed into Gate? Is this an error on the latest update.?? Has anyone else noticed this.
I have a problem when saving Presets from my Marshall Code 25 amp to my phone (Android).
The saved Preset repeats/copies itself about 20 times. Therefore, the app Presets are unusable because I have to scroll down or up 20 duplicates before I reach the next Preset.
There is no way to delete those Presets, and when tapping on one the app freezes.
I already posted this same question in an existing thread in which other people were notifying this same issue, but that post was deleted...
In that post you said you where working in a solution to this, but its have been 5 months since the first report of this problem, so
I'd be grateful if you could fix this as soon as possible and kindly ask you when do you plan to release the Gateway app fixed?
