Hi please refer to this previous question to help explain the background to my question:  https://my.marshall.com/forum/question/1479/marshall-code-100---should-it-have-come-with-a-2-way-foot-switch?filterType=recent&myActivity=True

Basically I bought a Marshall code 100 (no it's not 100H or 100C just a plain 100). It was out of its box and on display but discounted by about $180 because it had a slight dent in the base. The store rep claimed it had not been used. I bought it due to the price but after a few months I realised it should have come with a 2 button footswitch. I then raised this fact with the store and they agreed to supply me with the one that should have come with it. It has been about 6 months since they promised me they would replace and every time I ring up they come up with some bullshit excuse like "oh our suppliers on the other side of the country claim it is not sold as a spare and they have to order it in and they are not receiving any new stock of this item until Feb". 

So Feb has come and gone so I am about to ring them and vent my frustrations on them. Then I thought maybe I could get the PEDL 91009 foot switch instead of the PEDL-91010, at a discounted price (perhaps to the value of the cheaper switch that should have come with it), as I am told it is much better.  As I have never had or even used a foot switch and am completely clueless on them I have a few questions:

Does the basic PEDL-91010 footswitch only allow you to switch to the next preset up or down on the preset list of 100 presets? Or can you jump from like preset number 4 to preset number 98? If it only allows you to switch to the next one up or down does the 91009 model allow you to switch between any two presets on my list? Does the 91009 model allow you to program more than 2 presets to switch between when playing a song? 

Finally, one responder to my other post mentioned that the Code 100 only comes with a basic 2 way footswitch and that the PEDL 91010 is an optional extra. But this contradicts what others were saying (eg that it is the PEDL 91010 footswitch that it comes with).

Anyway I am confused and need all this cleared up so I am fully armed when I next call the store.

So about a year ago I got a footswitch for my Code 50, and when i first got it, it started banking backwards on it's own. I was able to stop it...until now. The worst part of it, is when i go to use the amp's tuner, it immediately exits because it thinks the button is being pressed. When it began a few days ago, I was able to press the bank button to increase the bank and counteract the issue, but now the bank button stopped working. Maybe I pressed it too hard or too much or something. I cant remember how I fixed it last time or whether or not the bank button worked, but all I know is this time it might be done for good. If anyone knows of this issue or has had it happen to themselves, please let me know how I can fix it. I dont remember all the presets that were saved to it, but I can remember a couple. Please help!!!

I was dicking about with tones, as you do, and when I meant to save my custom tone to my footswitch, and accidentally saved DSL Clean Chorus to #11 on the amp, Some Dely For You Too. This preset just happened to be one of my favorites. Is there anything I can do about it?

I recently purchased a new code 100 which was a display model. They didn't have the box for it or the owner's manual. I subsequently downloaded the manual off the internet. On one of the pages concerning the front panel functions it talks about the F/C jack socket and mentions "connect the supplied 2-way footswitch" but I never got one with  it. Has anyone recently purchased this model and did it come with a 2 way footswitch  for scrolling through presets? If so I will try and get one off the shop for free. If they argue their way out of it are they expensive to buy separately? **Update to this is that the manual I have downloaded has code 100 and code 100h on the cover so maybe the footswitch comes only with the 100h?

I recently added the tuner to my footswitch (preset), but now I want to undo it. I'd rather have the first bank available for a pre fx- preset. Doe anybody know how to undo it, ig by resetting the footswitch to factory settings?

thanks

Hello,

How can I program my code 50 so I can switch up/down through all my 100 presets?

I am using a 2 button footswich. Connected to a code 100H it worked fine.

Hello, I need advice. How and where do I register Amplifier Code 100?  You can register footswitch PEDL 91009, PEDL-10025 GV-2 Guv'nor plus, PEDL-10026 BB2 Bluesbreaker, Headphones MONITOR ?  I live in the Czech Republic, where I bought the goods in e-shop muziker.cz.

Amplifier in combination with PEDL 91009 is really supreme . I have a month and I play all the time, much better than FENDER.

For my use bad Windows software. I'm using CODE Patch Editor, there's a lot of options and there's nothing extra. Is there any other code software? Where I can edit and create new presets, play Backing Tracks. Similar Fender FUSE. I would like to buy it :-)                                                        

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Regards, Michal :-)
                                                                                                                                           

                                                      !!!!!!! MARSHALL FOREVER!!!!!!!!

Hello, 

i switch through my presets with  the Marshall PEDL-91009, however, this pedalboard only has 3 switches and a bank switch, however i would like to have a pedalboard with more than 3 preset switch button for faster recall ... is there a solution (maybe via MIDI) , or a compatible footswitch that i am unaware of?

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.

Got my amp, Code 100 combo and loving it, lucky to have a present of the new PEDL CODE Footswitch.

Being a bit of a noob to this new amp technology, I have managed to save a  preset to the pedal, but no thanks to the instructional video mind you, which misses out the essential part that you are meant to press store on the amp and press the location on the pedal at the same time. There I was pressing the footswitch like it says in the video then trying to store. Very ambiguous instructions there, not clear at all.

However, one question is, once I turn off my amp, are the settings on the footswitch wiped out or are they stored until I want to delete them?

Also, it appears that I can only store to the pedal from the amp. So what if I'm using the amp in 'blue' mode from a hand held device?

 That doesn't seem to work for me (using my preset from my handheld device and storing to the pedal that is) as it keep defaulting to an Amercian preset.

I may be doing something wrong, therefore I thought I'd ask the question, rather than just pull what little hair I have left out in frustration.

What are the limitations on the Code pedal? The documentation is woefully inadequote IMHO. The suppport video being just as poor.

I know the issue, it's software designed by software developers, with no end user experience being considered as opposed to using a UX team during development.

We either need more indepth clear and concise instructions, or a new video showing a detailed example how to save a preset (not just a voice over while looking at flashing LED's) and whether we can save, not only from the amp, but save a preset from the handheld device and store them for later use.

Sorry if the above is a bit of a moan, but if nobody moaned nothing would be done.

If you could answer my points above, that would be helpful.

Thanks

C.

Why does my code 50 amp cut out? Also, has loud crackeling sound when it's working. Sounds like a blown speaker but it's not. The master volume is only turned up 1/4 of the way and it's loud. Problems still remains even at lower volume. slight delay on the footswitch also when changing from one preset to another. Frustrated in Detroit.

Hello!

I’ve just bought a Code 25 with footswitch and have just started to look at the presets.  As far as I can see each amp sound corresponds to a number - for example Bluesbreaker Reverb is assigned to #44. Is there a way or re-assigning this e.g. to #1 ? I’d like to be able access some of the presets easily rather than having to scroll through all of the numbers.

 

Apologies if this has  already been asked on the forum

Many thanks

 

Robin

Yesterday, I went to my local guitar shop and purchased a Code 100 2x12 Combo and it came with a two-way footswitch. I assumed it would work with it considering I knew it came with a footswitch. However, the footswitch doesnt do much. The effects side does nothing to my amp and when I press the Normal / OD side twice, it will change my amp preset in reverse. For example, if I'm using my JCM 800 tone and I press the Normal / OD button twice, it will go to preset 99. Did they give me the wrong footswitch? Was I supposed to receive the Code programmable footswitch instead and the retail clerk didn't know what he was doing? Or is there a way to program the two way footswitch so it actually can be used effectively rather than a paperweight with a long cable on it? Please let me know as this has been frustrating for me. I play live shows and have shows coming up and can't afford to not have a footswitch.

my code worked ok with my galaxy 5 but i got a new moto z running android 7.1.1 and it will connect to bluetooth but will not  connect in gateway. when i push scan for amps it never finds the code amp and yes i pushed the bluetooth buttons on the amp.  in the gateway app the in the bottom left corner the amp/phone icon is missing for switching from amp to phone presets. the screen has the blue preset shown but the library has them in yellow.  the worst part is that the display on the code amp is not working. it is barely readable. just yellow with the black barely visable. so without being able to program it using the display it doesn't work with my phone either.  i have owned a lot of marshalls and still have a bunch but i have never been so dissapointed as i am with this piece of crapp. can't use it live because of the dropouts when switching channels and yea i know about using the same amps and settings in all the presets but that is unaceptable. i have the footswitch and thats a disaster too. one little slip like accidently pushing two buttons at the same time or too fast or twice freezes the amp or reprograms it. yea really cool turning it off and back on in the middle of a song.  i tried using it live once and it was a disaster. never again. so i love the tone for recording but now i can't even do that because it wont connect bluetooth and the display is almost dead so i can't program it.
