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
I just got the amp and am very close in getting my Strat sound, but, I play my Les Paul a lot more adn am having trouble getting a good clean with depth, not in your face, and slight break up when you hit it hard but clean when you hit it lightly. So far I get either muddy or brittle and no depth. Oddly enough, I got the exact sound from the Blackstar 100 I bought and it was a factory preset right there on the amp ! Then it blew up 2 hours after I got it. Turns out if you upfdate firmware on that one you kill the amp. Saw it on the forums after I did the update. Which is why I ended up with this Marshal Code 50. Any suggestions? I went through all the presets here on this site and just could not find anything. What I like is David Gilmore sounds, Santana sounds, And what I am searching for is a good Les Paul sound with depth, clean , but a bit of grit when you hit it hard , some air to it , and not an in your face sound. Sound is so hard to describe!
i hooked up my footswitch to the code 50 with the lead that came with it. No lights show up, but the preset on the amp changes. What do i do? The footswitch won’t work.
I updated to the latest firmware on my Code 50 which states it updates to new presets 00 thru 12 but even after running the update I still have the same name on said presets. Ive seen on the new 100 watt Codes that the presets have been updated and some new names for the presets which I really like. I was hoping this latest update would be the same on the 50 as the 100. Even though the names didnt change I can hear some differences in the latest presets.
Is this latest firmware update suppose to mimic the 100 watt amps ? Or is that not possible yet ?
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.
When I try to load preset from code to pc, there is: Error while decoding sysex: Error_Bad_Device_ID. How can I fix it?
Does anyone recommend a preset, or have a list of settings?
I made precise adjustments for the preset #79 on Marshall Code. I tried many times to share it; my amp is well plugged to my computer, and each time I try to share my own preset I get this message: "You cannot share this preset, as the settings match an existing Factory Preset." I don't understand because my own adjustments don't match the original Factory Preset...
Has anyone ever had this problem?
I've modified about 50 presets on my code 50 amp. I have recently installed the gateway app on my android phone and works well with teh amp.
I want to backup al my modified preset from my amp to another place, for instance on my marshall cloud.
When I connect my phone and the gate way amp and I select to save the preset and make sure that save to libary option is selected I can save the preset. When I logged on the my marshall nothing of the modified names is visible on my marshall. Also when I checked the library on the phone nothing has changed.
I only can see my modified presets when I connect to the amp. (Golden modify buttons)
My question: How can I backup all my modified presets to a cloud or locally on my phone in a easy user friendly way ?
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.
sorry for the stupid question but I cannot find a way......
I am having a problem when I am using bluetooth on my ipad the gateway app will freeze right in the middle of editing a preset. I am not sure if it is a bug or if its my device, but ive tried reconnecting the bluetooth for my amp and gotten the most recent update. So if someone can help me out that would be awesome.
Just got a code 25, loaded Marshall gateway on my samsung J3 android phone and noticed when you choose a patch from the library the threshold setting shown on early videos now appears to have morphed into Gate? Is this an error on the latest update.?? Has anyone else noticed this.
why do alot of the presets sound so muddy...
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 have a Code 50, so I turn to a particular preset and it includes say, flanger. how do I turn off the flanger and maybe add chorus instead. I know that the MOD section can be turned off. If it is on are the inactive effects simply zeroed out or is there a way to enable and disable each different effect. thanks. It looks like this applies to PRE EX, DEL and REV as well.
A second question is can I use the headphone out into either the guitar input or effect return of a second amp, either tube or SS?
Ok, don't curse me ok, but, is it cool to use external effects with a code amp? I hav a nice pedal board and I thought it may save me me from switching preset during a song.
Hi, how can I upload the presets from my code 50 amp to my gateway in my.marshall.com and change the order?
After some more hunting and pecking, I discoved how to get the listings to appear in My Gateway. I had to make sure my phone was connected to my computer then went through MENU on the Gateway phone app. After logging in, the app hilighted SYNC and once pressed away it went. I then managed to sort accordingly and save. The app does what it is supposed to do so now I have no problems at this point. Again, why isn't this explained in a document or tutorial...? Programmers and suppliers cannot expect users to understand their thought process without some clue here or there.
