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!
I really do not understand...should be the easiest thing to do...but it isn't....please help
I just bought a new Stanmore Multiroom speaker. When connecting it to my TV via cinch there is a horrably noticeable delay. The delay doesn't occur when I connect the Stanmore with the stereo plug.
Does anyone else have this problem and knows how to solve it?
I know it's been asked before but my Marshall Code 50 sounds realy muffled. Playing a Tele through it just sounds really muddy and flat. Tried tweaking the settings for Presence and Resonance but it makes little difference. When I plug headphones in though it seems super clear. Any thoughts?
My code-100 code head sounds awesome with 4x12 cabinet for live sound.......... But living in small quarters I need headphones to work properly..... not happening.. when I plug in headphones I lose sound .........any suggestions ? I shouldn't have to crank up Master volume and Gain and volume knobs to max just to get a muddled sound!!!!! Thanks for you help
I'd really like the ability to roll back firmware updates. The tone of this amp has got worse with each firmware update I've installed. I wish I would have left it at the default when I got it.
The first firmware update I installed ruined the DSL, and 50's British amps, and now this last update has ruined everything else. All the presets I created sound completely different now. What a waste!
I'm really beginning to regret buying a digital amp.
Can we get a list of the changes in the firmware update?
Hello guitar players,
today I got my new Code 100 head and connected it with my 2x12 speaker 1936 from marshall. I tried the presets and they sound very cool but the sound is in my opinion a little bit to muffled and not clear enough.
So I kicked out the cabinet in the settings and then the sound is very clear and cool for me. But whats exactly the sense of the cab when it sounds not good in my opinion. Do I really need them?
Thanks for your answers! :)
Hi there !
I've got a problem with my amp. I've bought Marshall Code 50 about 6 months ago and I'm playing in a band. When I set the sound I like, there's no problem. But when I turn up the Master and I play for more than 20 minutes, the sound become very ugly: No dynamics, no bass, too high... It's like playing with a simulated amp on a computer with a very bad sound card... And I don't know why..
Is anyone has the same problem ?
Thanks a lot !
I have a Code 25 and a windows 10 computer and I have tried everything and I can not get the amp to connect to my computer via USB. Does anyone know why? If anyone knows why please help!!!
Hi all would love someone to make those presets for me as I am useless and unable to do this on my own. Thanks in advance!
I have a much loved VS100 100w combo which has served me well for the last 20 years or so but has been missing a foot switch for a long time. Just picked one up this week (PEDL900-10) which looks like my old one but does nothing. Before I complain about a faulty foot switch can anyone confirm if this is compatible with my amp??
At this point, should we just hang up the idea of the Code 100 ever being available? I love my Code 50, and would absolutely love to have a 100w version but every time I check stores, its been delayed again. What gives Marshall?
Dear Marshall Team,
First of all, thanks for this awesome amp. I got almost everything I want from an amp except this.
When setting up my rig, I usually put a compressor in first position in the chain and then distortion, wah, eq, etc.
This amp has all those stomp box effects loaded, but unfortunately, they can not be operated simulataneously. I can only choose one at atime.
And I end up with putting my boss CS-3 in my setup with this amp and fit perfectly, but I dont like all those cables for signal and power adapter.
My question is, what was the concept when Marshall built this stomp boxes and limit the possibility of playing them simultaneously? Is that hardware limitation? Too much latency or... ?
Is there any possibility to modify the chain to allow simultan ops in the gateway? Or at least the Compressor?
If it can... then I can get rid of that CS3 and performing will become as easy as bringing CODE, footswitch and guitar, which I am sure that it was the concept from Marshall.
When is the next scheduled firmware update for the CODE25?
When was the most recent one ?
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.
just bought a CODE 50. My iPhone 7 just doesn't recognize the amp via Bluetooth and viceversa ... What could be the problem? Any suggestions?
Appreciate your help
How do you assign the tuner to the footswitch?
The lag time in the release of this footswitch is rediculous. Why would you promise something that you can't / don't deliver on? IF the Bluetooth/iphone Gateway App were usable/seemless, the physical footswitch might not be necessary. IF the parameters of the amp (including up/down patches) were avaiable via the USB port to a Computer program/app, the physical footswich might not be necssary. IF there weren't Bluetooth and other software bugs, then the physical footswitch might not be necessary. Unfortunately, IT IS necessary just to use the Code 25/50 remotely as was promised in it's advertising when purchased. Mine is still under Warranty by Marshall. It is not performing as advertised. Please send footswitch, or send me a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) for the whole AMP - you pay return shipping...
