I was using the usb connection to record on Audacity. The guitar I was using was a Fender Strat with noiseless pups. I found that the signal stregth was really low and the only way I could get a decent recorded signal was to turn up the master volume to an unbearable level and was close to getting a stern talking to from my better half. I then tried the same process but used some headphones and this sorted the level issue so it recorded a strong signal. There was still a bit of crackle on the recording but much improved from the last firmware release.
I then recorded some acoustic guitar without headphones. This was a martin DRs1 with a stock fishman pup. Signal strength was really good and the quality was great. No hum or hiss or crackle.
Great to hear others experiences.
Tried to update my firmware and tried three cables. None are even recognizing the amp on multiple computers. Tried to reset the settings on the amp and nothing helped. It seems as if the USB port is not working at all.
I can download and run the firmware updater on my Win 10 laptop - it then asks me to connect my CODE 25 amp. I connect the amp using a USB cable - then I see the message "An error occurred: An error occurred getting the device information from your CODE. Please try switching your amp off, and then switching it back on again."
I switch it off and on - no good. Same problem. I connect the CODE amp before running the firmware utility - same result. So I don't even know what firmware is currently in there. Is this solvable? BTW - the USB cable works, as my Marshall CODE Live Editor has connected to the amp using it.
wont start after i plug in amp with usb
The inability to record using USB makes this product close to a sham. A base feature which is broken really insults your users and is killing sales. Get this fixed now, please, before your costs include my solicitor.
I'm using Windows 10, and the Amp says "USB" when plugged into PC. I installed the window app, but all it says is "please connect your Code..,". I checked device manager and it says " Unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed). I tried uninstall, reboot, reload, etc., and different USB ports ,but nothing works.
I am experiencing terrible interference when trying to use my Code 50 via Bluetooth / Gateway (Apple) App while recording on my Mac in Logic Pro X. I am using a microphone to record the Code 50 and using the Bluetooth to change patches. The clicks/pops/noise/interference is loud enough to interfere with the recording process. Perhaps a DESKTOP (Apple) Gateway App via Code USB might be a solution for all users experiencing similar issues? I am running the most current Firmware. Any current solution to my noise issues? Thank you.
noticed people having interferance issues with the usb connection like me. was just wondering how you guys are comming along with the firmware application for windows and the new firmware?
I've downloaded the firmware updater onto my Windows 7 (most recent updates loaded) PC and it seems that there is no eligant way to close the updater after use. I had to use ProcMgr to force the updater to shutdown.
I also found that unless you do things in the correct way - fire up the updater tool before plugging in the USB, it seemed to get very confused - again I had to use procmgr to close it down.
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?
