I bought a Code 50 today and I'm very pleased with it apart from one thing – I downloaded the Gateway app (1.2.7) for my iPhone 6 running the latest version of iOS (9.3.3) and no matter what I try, I can't get the app to connect to the amp. The amp is set up in bluetooth pairing mode, I've hit the "scan for amps button" on the app so many times my finger is about to fall off! I've restarted the phone numerous times, restarted the amp, you name it. It won't find it. Any advice appreciated!
Does anyone know if you can connect Bluetooth headphones before I go buy a pair
i seem to remember seeing a previous question where someone asked if you could use an acoustic with the code. The reply from the tech team was it was disigned for use with electric only my question is has anybody out there used it with an acoustic and if so does it sound any good.
I just got my Code 25, and for the life of me I can't find, (going through the presets, or in the manual), how I bypass all the presets and just use it as a clean amp. I just want to plug in a guitar, (classicl in this case), and just amp the Vol - maybe with some tone control. Advice please? I must be missing something obvious, but I'm old, so...
Just got my Marshall CODE 25, and the iPhone 6 will not find the amp on the gateway app or on the regular bluetooth settings. Any reason why?
My new CODE-100 2x12 has a prominent digital fizz noise it also crackles, very unpleasant specially when you use tremolo, chorus, delays.
Very noticeable on the decay of the notes, decay of notes crackles.
When you play the low E string unfretted it makes a buzzing noise, this is difficult to forgive in any amp.
Are you guys at Marshall aware of this? should I return the amp?
I recently purchased a Code 50 and have been trying to connect it to the gateway app on my Android phone. The phone connects to the amp successfully via bluetooth and I can stream the audio out to the amp directly using Spotify but when I go into the gateway app, it says "Not Connected". I tried the "Scan for Amps" button but it doesn't find anything. Any help is appreciated.
It seemed to have installed CODE Audio interface, because I can see it is my Devices & Printers (Windows 8.1) as a composite device with a 2013 Microsoft driver installed. But it does not show up in my DAW at all.
Where is the driver and than in particular the ASIO driver for this????
It is connected, because when I use the WSAPI (Windows Shared API) is can see the SPEAKERS from code and play audio through there (horrible quality though). But not the input. Without that, this device has not much value for me.
Thanks for your help,
To Whom It May Concern.
I have bought Marsall Code 25 Amp. Would You tell me, where can I download software for my PC Windows7 or can You send me a download link ?
Yours sincerely, Denys Kovalenko.
I just bought my code 50 yesterday. The master volume is a real problem, I may have to return it just because of that. We can adjust the volume, but the second you change a preset it goes way too loud again. Even if I were to modify each of the 100 presets manually (which I am not in the mood to do), when the next firmware update happens those presets will be overwritten with the factory reset so back to square one.
Marshall, can you please give us a timeline for this? I have 30 days to return this thing to the store, I need an answer because I do not plan on living with this issue forever, maybe I will swap if for a Fender or Line6 or something with quicker response time from the manufacturer if need be... quite frustrated and only used the product for 30 minutes.
Hi. How to get firmware update v1.41? Checking in the browser not show any updates, Marshall firmware update utility show 5 updates to v1.41, but after updating on the screen of the AMP appears v1.11 and checking in browser proposes update firmware to v1.3
I just bought the CODE 50 and like it alot; I also have the GATEWAY APP on my phone.
(FYI: I literally must have 25-30 other Top Notch Amps- MARSHALLS / SOLDANO / HUGHES KETNNER / LINE 6 etc;
But I needed something very small for some of the tiny gigs we do; and I feel the CODE has better "Sounds" than my Fender Mustang GT - was using)
-I just created 15-10 CUSTOM PRESETSon the CODE. They are obviously saved on my CODE 50 AMP ....as Presets 1 -25;
-BUT: HOW DO I ALSO SAVE/STORE THEM TO MY GATEWWAY IPHONE APP???!! (aka; so I don't "lose' them, in case I want to use on another Code Amp, etc.?)
(Basically I'm afraid if I do it wrong; I'll restore the Factory Presets onto my Amp and all my work will be lost!)
-AND; if I do that; will MY PRESESTS stay in my "APP"; even when the Amp is turned off and not connected to App?
Please let me know and thanks (and any other Suggestions or INTEL!)!

Yeh. I'll bet the title of THIS post caught the attention of a few folks!!! LOL!!! Sorry. It's not an effects loop as you would know it!!!
As you all know: there's no effects loop on the CODE 25 and CODE50. I've not found this to be an issue but I would like to try and hook up an equalizer (Boss GE-7) to try out. I've have tried putting the pedal in the front but with high gain amps. like the JCM800 the noise levels lift WAY too much especially if you're using PRE FX like distortion (and REVERB and DELAY make the situation worse). In addition to this there are certain pedals that just should be in an effects loop and not in front e.g. TC Electronic's MIMIQ.
So here's my plan (which requires two amps.) (and which is the reason I said "it's not an effects loop as you would know it!!!" above):
1 - Guitar straight into amp. 1 (say a CODE 25).
2 - On amp. 1: ONLY PRE FX and PRE AMP are turned ON i.e. everything else is turned OFF.
3 - From amp. 1: take the LINE OUT (HEADPHONE) to a REAMP box (this to reduce the output level from amp. 1 from a line level signal back to an instrument level signal) (and this so as not to blow up your pedals or second amp.).
4 - From the REAMP box: to pedal (or pedals i.e. however many you want in your "loop").
5 - From pedals: into amp. 2 (another CODE 25 for example) and on amp. 2 PRE FX and PRE AMP are turned OFF and everything else is turned ON.
Can anybody think of any reason why this would NOT work???
It IS INDEED an effects loop i.e. your effects are now sitting between the ouput stage of a PRE AMP (amp.1) and the input stage of a POWER AMP (amp. 2) which is indeed a normal effects loop as we all know it (this just being a very long winded way of accomplishing the same thing).
Yeh. I know. I could just try it but I'd rather get some outside input before I go blasting my amps. because there's something I've not thought of here. Oh and don't worry: I won't hold anybody responsible if things go wrong!!! LOL!!! Oh and don't worry Marshall i.e. if memory serves me correctly all but one of my amps. are out of warranty!!! LOL!!!
If Marshall would be so kind and forthcoming so as to give us a clue as to where the effects loops connections are on the CODE 100/100H??? I've a feeling that a "proper" effects loop could very easily be "installed" on a CODE 25 / CODE 50 IF you know where to splice into the internal connections!!! I say this because bear in mind that ALL of the CODE range use the same firmware and the front panels on the CODE 50 and CODE 100/100H are pretty much identical. And I also believe there is already a clue in the sense that on the CODE 100/100H: the LINE OUT (HEADPHONE) socket disables the effects loop. Hmmmnnn... Unfortunately I don't have access to a CODE 100/100H (at least not the type of access that will allow me near one with a screwdriver in hand!!! LOL!!!).
This is not a question but a response to those who have asked if there is a way to reduce the output wattage on Code amps to make them quieter. The short answer is no, not out of the box.
However, the speaker(s) that come with Code amps are 4 ohm. In the case of the Code 25, you can swap it out for a Celestion G10N-40 10" 8 ohm speaker (about $70 on Amazon) and reduce the output from 25 watts to 12.5 watts due to the change from 4 ohms to 8 ohms. Instead of running the master volume at < 1 when I'm jamming with my stereo, I can now run it at about 3. The added bonus is better sound - you hear the distortion from the amp itself with less mud and distortion from the speaker. This will not harm the amp in any way as driving an 8 ohm load requires less of an amp than a 4 ohm load.
Full disclosure, this was not my idea. I read about this from another Code 25 owner. Enjoy!
Ok, the buzz, fuzz I and others noticed (Its Real). First before you ask I tried the cable and the guitar on my Crate Amp. The notes ring like a bell No fuzz or Buzz.
So that eleminats my guitar and cable. I notice if I use eather the Acustic or Natural Pre Amps on my Code -50 the BUZZ / Fuzz dissipears. So I assume its not a hardware issue with the Code 50. I think its a software issue. Is it possiable to fix and down load new Pre Amp Modelse to fix the problem?
I would love to get this fixed! Its annoying!
Whenever I turn my amp on it just buzzes, and doesn’t pick up the guitar at all. It’s not the guitar because it still does it unplugged from both guitars I tried. Tried different outlets too. Can anyone help?
I've been enjoying my Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker for 5 years and it has suddenly stopped working properly a few weeks ago. When turned on, the red power light is coming on but there is no sound coming out, either when pairing via the Bluetooth connection or the Input source using the audio cable. I can hear a very low buzz sound which stay at the same volume level (even when turning the volume up). The speaker connects to Bluetooth but I can't get no sound out of it. Have tried with my Mackbook Pro and iPhone. I also have a Marshall Acton speaker which works perfectly. Any idea what's wrong with the Stanmore? Thanks.
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.
Please fix this, Marshall!
The only way to listen music on Woburn is via cableless connection. You cant plug your TV or DVD player in it, as it has a huge delay.
I've spoke with someone of Marshall team, and I was adviced that, this product is not ment to be used with TVs, Piano, Guitar or any other devices. So, how many speakers I need to own in my house? One for music, a soundbar for TV, amp for my guitar?
I would giveup multi-room feature if AUX and/or RCA had no latency!
If I did know there would be latency over AUX and RCA I would never buy this expencive speacker! Bose Soundlink had the same issue, but they DID FIX it with with an firmware update. Why Marshall didn't fix it yet?
So Please dear Marshall team! If you read this, please! Fix the latency over RCA or / and AUX so I can love my speaker again.
