Hi I think you misunderstood my question- I don't want to download, I want to save the settings I have tweaked in case my amp breaks and I need to re-download them later.
original question : Is it possible to upload and save presets via USB? How do I do it? (I don't have smartphone so cant use phone app).
Is it possible to upload and save presets via USB? How do I do it? (I don't have smartphone so cant use phone app).
I connected my Code 50 to my laptop via bluetooth, but the my.marshall presets says "CODE not connected". I tried connecting via USB, but the amp has a goofy connector that standard USB cables do not connect to. Also - I can connect via the Gateway app on my phone, but the presets I add to My Library do not show up (even though it says that they have synced).
Hello, I would like to connect one of my PCs (OS linux) on a Marshall CODE 50 and take control via usb midi.
When I open /etc/dmmidi2 in read acces. Reading file char by char, I see information when I touch the buttons of the amp (PREFX, AMP, MOD, ...). I can find the information in CODE-Midi-Implementation-Chart-V2.1.pdf.
I usually get two or three bytes and cross it with the document.
But this frame is not in the form Start of Transmission> Header> Command> End of Transmission.
By against when I open /etc/dmmmidi2 in write access, I can not send any command.
After having turned on the amp, I sent the following sequence for RECALL PRESETS 05:
0xF0 0x00 0x21 0x15 0x7F 0x7F 0x7F 0x73 0x01 0x05 0xF7
or RECALL CURRENT SETTINGS:
0xF0 0x00 0x21 0x15 0x7F 0x7F 0x7F 0x72 0x01 0x00 0xF7
Start of Transmission> Header> Command> End of Transmission
This command does not seem to work. Is there an intermediary step?
Would it be possible to give me a typical sequence to the CODE or a document that will explain the procedure to operate (ON / OFF) one of the button (PREFX, AMP, MOD, ...) of the amp.
Thank you in advance.
I've had a great time demoing the presets but once I save one I like into 'My Presets' and add it onto 'My Gateway' list I can't get it to go over onto my amp.
Can I use the USB to put the patches/presets I want directly onto my amp or do I have to go through the Mobile App to sync it?
can any one help me i can't down load any of my favorite guitar players presets,do i do it manually on my phone or what i got how the USB gets the music from my library,but every time i pair my phone with my marshall it stays on for one preset i can't even reconize so i play all my music songs pink floyd led zepplin SRV JIMI H On simple clean setting what the ,and futher more at a guitarist presets he might have used at the left bottom corner there is 4 or 5 boxes,phone box amp box and stupid finger sign and so on but i get a stop sign code when i click on the little amp .i can play little wing and basically with an amp that should tell you more i guess its not the amp or the guitar you have its the size of the theory of how your soul connects with the vibe.help if you can
Hey all - new to the forums, new to Marshall amps and had a few questions about the Code 50 I just ordered that will be here in a day or so. I have played my guitars through my buddy's Code 50 and am familiar with editing the patches, tweaking the tones and getting the sounds that I want from the amp to fit my playing style. What I am not familiar with is the use of footswitch and any Midi capabilities it may have.
1) Can one use just a regular on/off type of old school footswitch to turn an effect or amp on/off or initiate a patch change? I have several old school footswitches I have successfully used on many different amps, albeit older amps, and it has always worked. Curious since the Marshall footswitch actually holds presets if anything like that would work.
2) As far as Midi goes, I come from a Line6 multi-effects world and know that many of their multi-effect units have the capability to control effects on/off/parameters and patch/bank switching via Midi commands. Does the Code software have anything like that if hooked up to a PC/Mac running a DAW that has the capability to send midi control commands to change patches/effects realtime during recording/playback.
Thanks for any input and excited to get this amp. I am a player of over 30 years and have only ever played through Crate amps for the past 20+ years that have finally given up and the cost to repair is more than new. Bash Crate all you want but they were loud and proud and with the right EQ/effects loops made some damn good musical sounds.
Hi I just bought a code 50 and when i try to plug USB cable with my computer (mac pro), evrytime i saw that so it is impossibe to change preset.
I got a Marshall Code 50 a few days ago. It is so much more than I expected. There are more than enough presets to mess with. Some are pretty crappy, but there are abunch of good ones worth tweaking. I've read a lot of comments saying that the amp is crap, the presets suck,etc With so many editing options available, if you can't find the tone you want, you shouldn't be messing with modeling amps. There is plenty of power for my needs, and seems to sound good and consistent through a large volume range.
The stuff I don't like:
1) Why couldn't you use a 1/4" headphone jack instead of the mini?
2) Why couldn't you use a USB normal sized plug instead of miniUSB? You didn't know that miniUSB is almost prehistoric now? I had a tough time finding an adaptor here in Sao Paulo. If I can't easily get ancient technology here in Brazil, the connector must be extinct in the real world.
I've started messing around connecting the amp to my DAW Logic pro and recorded some stuff. It's got potential
I have the My Marshall app paired with my CODE amp. I have my mobile device (Samsung tabket) connected to the amp via a Micro USB cable but still receive the not connected message. I can't download any user presets.
My son has a Code 25 and the preset knob stopped working i had a look at it last night and tried the firmware update from the web site now it wont do anything and just says check USB. has anyone had this problem or have a solution.
thanks in advance
Hi, I’m having trouble getting sound from my Marshall Code 50 amp to record on Audacity.
I am running a new, working USB B cable from my Marshall Code 50 to a Dell Latitude 7280 running Windows 10. The computer is able to detect the amp USB input, and I am using the ‘CODE 50 digtal interface’ as my default recording device on both my soundcard and Audacity, however there is no sound output coming from the amp shown on Audacity , when I try to record (sound is produced from the amp’s speakers, however Audacity is not showing or recording any sound output). I am sure that the connection is working and the amp/ computer is not faulty, as I am able to download tone presets from the MyMarshall preset page. I have tried restarting both my laptop and amp multiple times, using different cables, using different USB ports, AND have the newest 1.41 CODE software, newest Audacity software, and newest version of my Intel HD sound drivers, but to no effect. I am on the verge of going insane from this as I have being trying for over 10 hours, and have had no results. This has worked for me previously, as I last recorded to Audacity with all the same settings about a month ago, however it’s simply not working anymore. I need to get it fixed ASAP, as I am due to record tomorrow, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
My problem is quiet strange and I can not find any resolution for it.
To explain my problem I will start from beginning:
We have 2 places where are presets:
- 100 presets directly in amp
- 100 preset in gatway library
They are diffrent of course :)
I did some modificaiton in both places and I wanted to recover to factory settings.
So in gatway I pushed: MENU- > MY MARSHALL -> RESET GATEWAY PRESETS
After that I did factory reset on amp: Holding "AMP" button while switching on power -> holding store button to recover all presets.
After those actions I don't have original factory preset in amp but I have all the same preset from library.
So Gatway Library and presets directly on amp are the same!
To imagine this situation lets see few beginig presets:
00 JTM CHill
02 So American
Presets in amp:
00 JTM CHill
02 So American
They are even if I disconnect all Gatway and remove USB cable!
For example before this situation a had following presets:
10 Metal edge
Now they are gone :(
- reinstall updates
- do another facotry reset in amp
- disconnect/connect marshall gateway
While starting there are information about version.
It's "Version 1.11". I don't understand why it isn't 1.41 like last update ?!
I did update for sure.
Just one idea comming to my mind: There is way to do software reset and then do update to 1.41?
Please help me to solve this problem because I lost my favorite presets
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"
Have I missed something or would the ability to edit presets vis computer (in same manner as gateway app) be a thing to sort out? Seems like a trick is being missed.
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.
On the code 50 there is an option to edit the presets but this is not on the 25. Is there still a way to edit presets?
Can the usb be used for anything other than recording?
