Hey, new member here with a (hopfully) simple 2 part question.
First off, I recently purchased an Astoria Custom combo amp and I'd like to see about converting it for use with a standard USA power outlet. Does the Power Transformer have a 110 Volt tap or would the Power transformer need to be changed out? How extensive a change is this? Is there a Service center that can make this change for me in such a way that it will not void my warranty?
And in the second part of the question, in the interim until I can get the amp converted I've been using a power transformer to step up from 110V to 220V. What is the optimal wattage rating I should be using for this amp?
Thanks so much in advance for your help on this issue. - Joe
Hey guys, what would be the best set up for using a loop pedal with a code 50? Is it possible?
OR is there a way to start/stop recording with the looper preset via the footpedal?
Thanks in advance ;)
I have pre-ordered and am paying for the CODE 100 heqad from Sweetwater. Two questions: Are you addressing what seem to be the many issues the platform is experiencing? And is there any update on the release/ shipment date?
Just wondering if there's any info I can get on a transformer for my DBS7200? It's shit a transformer and I need to get a replacement.
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?
Hi, Does anyone find out how to bypass all presets in code 50 and use as a normal amplier? i just wanted not to use the presets and use my analog pedals.
i cant load the persets from my library when i use the app
is there any solution ?!
I own 4 Marshall Pedals. The bottom plates on all of them is warping up and cracking badly on all of them. What appears to be happening is the rubber bottom is shrinking and making the pressed powdered metal bottoms to crack ad warp. This makes the bottoms open in the center by several milimeters and the pedals no longer sit flat on a surface and in fact rock front to back.
I need to know if I can buy replacement bottoms for them. These arent cheap pedals and I'd like to keep using them. The problem with the rounded bottoms make them highly unstable and even a hazzard. more then once I went to step down on one and the rounded bottoms have caused me to loose my footing and nearly fallen. This can be a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Its OK to make the pedal bodies out of powdered metal. Most manufactures do because its used in injection moulding, but your company is the only one O've seen using it for bottoms. Most manufacturers are wise enough to know you need a steel plate for the bottom. The white metal is not a stable rigid compound and can fracture easily. The rubber bumper is either shrinking on one side or expanding on the other making the plate expand and crack.
This really needs to be addressed by Marshall. It only takes one musician falling because of this manufacturing defect and Marshall will be in a lawsuit.
I simply want to purchase new bottoms. The warping is so bad at this point I cant use the pedals properly. If I remove the screws the bottom plates will simply crumble to bits. These pedals were bought over a series of years from several sources too so its not a batch problem its a manufacturing flaw.
Hi Marshall Team,
Yesterday I bought a CODE 25 amp and after some quick fiddling with it I'm more than happy with the sounds I can get.
Unfortunately today I wanted to check out the app features and here's where the experience went south.
I am able to connect to the amp via Bluetooth and stream music but when I open the app I don't get the 'Connect' red tab and the 'Menu\Code' section gives no search results regardless of how many times I try.
Before you refer me to the standards - I've tried them. I went through 'close app -> remove from last viewed apps -> unpair BT -> amp off -> amp on-> etc...', I went through same routine but with uninstalling the app and installing it once again. Phone restarts - also done. Hell, I even reinstalled the firmware on the amp (it was the latest one from the very beginning in case you wonder). No success whatosever.
Gateway app - ver. 1.4.2
Phone - Galaxy S7
Android - ver. 6.0.1
Hope you will be able to help.
haven't even received my Code 50 yet and already doubting my decision the way the app is set up...
how do I add the downloaded presets to the app?
[EDIT: figured out how to manage the library]
why do I have to overwrite original presets to create my own?
[EDIT: seeing now how it adds a backup when I copy another preset on top]
would it be too hard to add more empty banks of 100 to the library?
[EDIT: finally figured out how to view and edit the library in 'My Gateway' tab on this site]
why can't I select only some of the presets I want to reset to original settings? It's all or nothing for resetting.
What would be a equivelant amp to replace my recently made wet VS 265 with?
Picked up this combo a few weeks ago and its making some weird space age noises and im wondering if the valve needs replacement and if so what make i should be using. Many thanks for your help
What is the procedure to roll back a recent firmware update on CODE 50?
Will updating the firmware on a CODE 50 change/reset any presets?
Will it do anything to the sound of the CODE 50?
It seems it changes the sound of the CODE 50 any/some?
I just want to check with fellow CODE users if they are facing the same issues that I am dealing with.
Biggest (and most annoying) issue is, it's a matter of luck connecting the CODE through USB. 2 times out of 10 my pc recognizes the amp the first time I plug it in. Mostly it gives an error that device is not connected properly or not recognized by windows. So I end up unplugging and plugging again until (if ever) it's been recognized. (Using windows 8.1 btw) Then suddenly in the middle of a recording session my DAW starts to drag like if I am running on a PC Pentium 600. (It's running on a 3000$ alienware) This is a sign that somehow CODE get disconnected itself. Now you have only option left: Restart the PC and start all over again.
So far I have checked with different USB cables, and I am using the shortest ones as possible as I can. (less than 80 cm.) I can't check with another pc since I don't have another one, but I am running Yamaha THR-10 smoothly, without any problems at all!
So I don't believe that there's an issue with my pc. And speaking of THR, why the hell CODE doesn't have it's dedicated USB drivers. I am kind of sure that the issue I am facing is all about the ASIO drivers that we are left with as an only option.
Second issue is, maybe only 1 out of 20 times I am able to get any presets from web site. Even if it looks like CODE is connected in the Device Manager, and the Chrome (or Opera) says MIDI is connected, I can't send any presets to the amp. After a few tries, this ends up with web browsers got frozen and only option is again: restart your pc!
I really would like to hear from people who are facing similar issues and how they could get over with it. (if they ever could)
And hopefully the only answer I receive from Marshall team is not going to be: "Thanks for your feedback, we will pass this to our technical team"
Playback problem using nexus 7. Gateway app wont find my tunes. Does it look somewhere specific, can it cope with folders, what formats will it play.
The Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 100 has a problem with the FX send and return...I plug a 1/4TS into return of FX Return (A)...huge Buzz....I plug same cable into FX Send (B) ...huge buzz.....So only Return of A and Send of B have the buzz...I am only plugging in empty cables...nothing connected....but the amp buzzes when these cables are inserted.
This happens only when the footswith has FX button enabled and on every channel. Doesn't matter if anything else is plugged into the front input or not. Just buzzes when a cable is inserted into A Send or B return.
Is this a serious issue, or can it be resolved easily. I have been around the internet and noticed not many answers on this, but a lot of questions. Need help!!!
The usb driver of the code amp is loaded as it is showing device manager. But when I switch to this in cubase I cant allocate input busses.
Via my iPad air, I use the My Marshall app (great app!) and want to use my mini Jam box for playing backing tracks. What is happening is that 2 instances of the Marshall amp are opening on the iPad, interferring with the mini Jam box. By this, I mean the backing track is playing only through the Marshall amp, not the mini Jam box. Sometimes I am able to "disconnect" the duplicate instance of the Marshall amp via the iPad bluetooth but not always. Also, I suspect there is some kind of conflict happening since I am also experiencing when I can "disconnect" the duplicate Marshall amp in the iPad blue tooth, I am losing the connectivity between the iPad and amp.
Any thoughts on how to resolve this, please!
I can't get the app to connect to the amp.
My Android phone connects and pairs to the amp fine (See screenshot). When I go into the app it seems to be able to see the amp but when I hit the button to connect it immediately shows as 'Not Connected'. (See second screenshot).
All firmware is up to date.
This is similar to problems I had when I first got the amp, but after a few teething troubles in the beginning I did get the connection to work pretty consistently, now it's not connecting at all.
On a related note, please give your devs a nudge on getting a desktop app. I see from internet searches that all sorts of people are having connectivity issues, it would be really handy to be able to get round them!
Thanks in anticipation.
