Hi, is it possible to see the Amps I have registered on my profile?
Fuzz pedal. I love my CODE 25, but I'm a bit surprised that a fuzz pedal was not included in the "distortion" section of the pre FX. I hope Marshall corrects this with the next firmware update.
Hello, I've noticed that the firmware update is only available for windows not mac. Is there any alternative way mac users can update? Or will this be an option in the future?
Any plans to release a Windows desktop app for managing presets via USB connection? I'm not an Android or iPhone user. Editing via amp panel is ok, but somewhat tedious.
I registered my amp on My Marshall but I don"t see where it's listed. After I registered the amp I don't see it listed as part of my profile. There should be a "registered amp" tab so that I can access the serial number if I need it. Thanks.
I have the CODE 50. My problem is with the master volume knob. When I set it to ~ 0-0.9 it is very low, but once it gets to ~1.1 it gets immediatelly too loud and there is no way to achieve something in between. Controling the master volume is a real problem cos I can not get a normal (not too loud) volume. You can make the increments between 0-2 a bit more slowly increasing to allow better management of the master volume.
Another thing is the playback volume on both the Gateway app and the line in. When using the Gateway app I have to lower the volume (1-3) and increase the master to a lot more just to balance the backing track and the guitar. I have tried my phone via line-in, my laptop and even connecting it to the output of my Creative SBX. The only thing that works is cranking the volume pass 100% on the PC player if it is supported to get it to be loud enough to play along.
I'm experiencing unwanted noise when connecting my Code25 via USB to my iMac. I've tried several different USB cables and I'm using GarageBand, making sure to turn off all plugins and no other applications are running. I've seen mention of the same issue on other forums. I've created an audio file with a sample of the unwanted noise. https://soundcloud.com/victor-futura/marshall-code25-usb-noise
Is this a known issue, if so, can it be corrected in a future firmware update?
Hi why was the code amp released when it is imposssible to get a 91009 foot swich anywhere also no covers avalible to protect said amp. I am being told up to october on the swich and who knows on the covers. can you help.
100 presets is more than the avaerage human brain can handle, 5 +/- 2 is the old adage. The Gateway app when active and syncing with the amp displays "Tap to sync" after the first few preset entries. So you can't efficiently scroll through the presets. Is there a preset listing anywhere on the Marshall Website a customer can print out?
In a future release of the ios app the presets managed by group such as a catagory/folder entry would be nice, e.g. Metal, Clean, Rock, etc ...
I know that the Mac version of the firmware updater is coming soon. But how will we know when new firmware updates are released? Only through the desktop software? Or will there be a notice in the iOS app? The website?
The last reply to this question was in June 2016, could you please update date Mac users as to when we can expect a solution to the Firmware issue please.
Just downloaded the latest firmware updates and updated all my CODE amps. (almost a full-time job lemme tell ya!!! LOL!!! Only joking!!!). No problems with the updates at all.
I do, however, have a suggestion Team Marshall:
Can you not change the firmware updates page to reflect the current firmware revision and release date (and, if it's not TOO much trouble, maybe include all previous firmware versions and their changelogs)???
Reason for my suggestion above:
Only reason I knew that there was a new firmware update was because I was browsing presets and happened to notice that a new section had been created detailing presets contained in the newest firmware version.
In other words: it'd be nice to know as and when new firmware updates become available so that we all know to download and install the latest firmware updates.
As for the sidenote mentioned in the title of this message:
Be aware that although the new firmware includes some new presets and the website indicates that it does not overwrite existing presets: this is only true if you do NOT reset your CODE amp. to factory defaults after the latest firmware update. In other words: if you download and install the latest version of the firmware and then reset your CODE amp to factory defaults then the NEW presets take effect and the old, original, factory default presets are overwritten. Not really a big issue but you need to be aware anyway.
Here are a few things I would suggest as improvements to the Marshall Code series. I have a 25 so some things may be specific to that amp. I have stuck to things that could be improved only by software or firmware as these are improvements everyone can have simply by updating the firmware rather than modifying the amp itself.
1. Reduced power mode to switch between full power and lower power mode. This would fix the volume control issue everyone complains about. Maybe this could be a global setting in the firmware ?
2. USB audio Volume level setting (e.g. -3dB, 0dB, +3dB etc). This could also be a global setting in the firmware ?
2. Normalise the volumes of the models, some are way too hot (British class A power-amp), some are way too low (Natural pre-amp). I beleive this is the reason why some models have strange low frequency distortion (50s British, OD DSL).
3. Show the configuration of the Cab models, not everyone is a Marshall fanboy and I have no idea what cab a "1960X". even if it was displayed as "1960X (4x12)" I would at least know what the configuration of cab the model is.
4. Fix the spring and hall reverbs, they sound very cheap, like the "echo" you would get on a cheap karaoke machine, certainly nothing like a spring reverb.
5. For god's sake release an official desktop editor!!! with the option to save/restore/edit patches.
6. A sync button to sync the amp presets with your gateway. It you want to rearage the patches online in gateway, you have to manually save all the patches one at a time to the amp using the phone app. So if you add a new patch at position 0, you have to manually save all 100 patches one at a time in order to match your gateway sounds!
7. Fix the tuner, it is pretty bad on both the amp and the app. It's slow to respond and not very accurate (at least thats what its like on mine). Ive no idea how well it works on the foot controller.
8. If possible add a Fuzz pedal model, even at the expense of removing another model (I wouldnt miss the pretty poor Acoustic simulator for instance).
These are just some suggestions that I feel would make the amp just a little bit better, but in general I'm having a lot of fun with this little amp, and love the sounds and features it has. It is way better sounding than some of the negative reviews online would suggest.
Maybe other people can suggest firmware updates too?
I see that the Bluetooth issue I am experiencing has been going on for some time now. I just bought this amp but I wouldn't have had I known how frustrtating it was going to turn out!
The whole appeal of this amp was that I could sit back with my phone or ipad and diddle with the settings peacfully. But no, you can't do that becasue first you have to pair the amp and phone/ipad EVERYTIME you want to use the gateway app.
Come on guys, really this is ridiculous. How many other people are complaing about this very issue. You can't sell a half baked product and not fix it. At very least allow us to roll back to the previous firmware.
Would someone from Marshall Amplifiers truthfully indicte if they have officially abandoned support for the "Code" series of their amplifiers? With no firmware updates since July of 2019, it would appear that Marshall Amplifiers has abandoned their "Code" series of amplifiers and their customers who have purchased them. Please indicate if Marshall Amplifiers no longer supports these products so that myself and the others who purchased their "Code" amplifiers won't waste any further time or effort continuing to check for updates in that sorry-assed section of your website.
We've bought an amp emulator with a firmware, we have spent money believing in Marshall that is a great trademark. Every sellers of amp with emulations inside and a firmware periodically upgrade it. You don't do it. It's time to do it, to increase the number of the amps, the effects, the algoritm need to be more realistic and warming. Come on!
This is killing me! total dealbreaker. If I can't find a solution I'll return this speaker which I love everything else about it.
It goes to auto-standby if it's unused for 20 mins regardless of bluetooth use or sound coming from RCA jack. But whenever I play something next time, I have to touch the knobs to wake it up manually. I put the speaker in my bookshelf which my plan is to not need to touch it in every use.
I want it to not go stanby mode ever. Is it possible? I couldn't find any answer in the manual, in the forum or in any other place. Sent a support inquiry as well, but I'm curious if anyone else is having same issue.
Hi, I already asked 03 Apr 2018.
But there is still no news of the firmware that fixes the problem. How long do you have to wait?
If you plan to take a long time to upgrade your firmware, be sure to downgrade to a version older than V1.41 that has no Bluetooth issues. I am very angry about your unreasonable follow-up care.
Hope to have a quick solution.
Bluetooth issues with the latest firmware and Code amps are well known (v1.41). These issues did not exist with the previous firmware. I'm sure many would simply like to revert, but Marshall has been telling us they have been working on fixing this since October of last year. Alluding to new firmware coming for quite some time now...
My questions are simple. Can you give any sort of an actual ETA for the next firmware revision for the Code amps (Code 25 in my case)? If no firmware revision is soon forthcoming, will you offer us the option to revert to the previous firmware until an actual fix/update is ready?
Not asking if you are still working on things here, or if you may consider a revert option. Asking if there is anything solid to give us here in hopes the issues firmware v1.41 has caused will soon be resolved (or not if that should be the case). It's been long enough I think, please just let us know.
My new CODE-100 2x12 has a prominent digital fizz noise it also crackles, very unpleasant specially when you use tremolo, chorus, delays.
Very noticeable on the decay of the notes, decay of notes crackles.
When you play the low E string unfretted it makes a buzzing noise, this is difficult to forgive in any amp.
Are you guys at Marshall aware of this? should I return the amp?
