Hi, I received a new Code 25 today. The unit switches on and the display comes on etc but absolutley nothing I have tried can get it to make a sound.... I don't think even I am stupid enough for this so I'm thinking there is a problem with the amp. The only thing I have attempted is to update the firmware but since none of the USB cables I have tried with it seem to work (though they do work on other items) I can't even get it updated. Anyone got any suggestions before I have to send it back?
I love the sound of my amp just as is out of the box ....I never thought to update the firmware ...it's of no super significance because I can make my own custom presets ,...
Buit when I decided to use the usb connection it looks as though there are these ( teeth) looking holes in it ....where the usb cable gos and my question is
What kind of CABLE ( speciality) or USB CABLE FITS THIS CODE 100 COMBO ?
Micro USB OR ??
HIT ME UP When u can
Why did Marshall implement an interface technology that was outdated in 2007 without at least supplying an USB mini cable?
I honestly have never even seen one physically.
The more that I think about it, the angrier I get. I have probably 50 cables around the house and they are all Micro or printer cable usb.
I have had this amp since 2018 and I still haven’t found one.
I have seen them for sale on Amazon, Walmart.com, Etc but I live somewhere where No one delivers. If I can’t buy it in person, I don’t want it anyways.
I’m pissed Marshall.
Happy New Year!
I have recently switched from a MacBook to a Windows 10 desktop and had previously recorded via USB straight into Garageband using the CODE with no issues at all. After switching to Windows 10 I can't get the CODE to connect though, it wont recognise in Chrome to manage the presets (I just get the "CODE: Not Connected" message in the bottom left of the screen, I have tried free trial versions and free to use DAW's and none of them see the CODE as an input. I've installed the ASIO4ALL driver but still no joy, the CODE is on the 1.44 firmware.
Am I missing something or is there a setting to change other than switching the MIDI input to ASIO?
Thanks in advance,
I purchased an iPad 2020 and I can not find an adapter that works to plug into my CODE to add presets. Any thoughts?
im a Marshall code 50 owner.
i was trying to record my guitar via USB using GarageBand, but it was not possible.
I setup the input as Code in GarageBand but doesn't work.
any suggestions? or maybe Code doesnt work with GarageBand?
can you recomend any interface (not an expensive one) to record my guitar?
owned a code 25 for a while now but only really started using it during lockdown but have to say I'm really impressed. I'm just using it for living room playing and connected to my DAW as a way of laying down ideas but seriously, it's REALLY good.
For context, I've played guitar for 27 years and working in live music has been my primary source of income (pre lockdown....) for around 17 years. I'm usually a live-sound engineer and tour manager and occasionally fill in the gaps with some guitar-teching. I'm uk-based but have international clients, mostly guitar-based, playing mostly academy sized venues but have done major festivals worldwide and one short stint of an arena tour. The point here is not to blow my whistle, simply to say I've spent a lot of time being exposed to all manner of amps and modelling.
I own a line 6 helix and while the CODE isn't as flexible with regards to I/O, I genuinely feel like it's amp-modelling, especially for crunch, fuzzy or blown out tones, blows the Helix out of the water. Not that I'm as likely to use metal tones or had much cause to tweak them but I've noticed those kind of presets can sound a little thin. Also, higher gain sounds in general could benefit from a graphic EQ somewhere in the modelling chain, as it can be prone to squeak at frequencies usually outside of a regular amps range, presumably because of the full-range nature of the cab.
So, my query is, is there any chance that the CODE range is likely to get any substantial firmware updates or maybe 2nd generation hardware that could bring additional functionality/Pro level durability and a decent footswitch... I'm impressed that you've managed to get that much functionality out of a mono-jack but a few extra switches or even just midi connectivity for use with after market footswitched to access would open the amp right up.
Personally, I'd love to see one capable of more complex I/O routing i.e. the ability to record your dry input to DAW over usb and similarly, route from the DAW to the amp input for re-amping.
Midi I/O and an xlr input with phantom and a decent sounding pre would make it a nice little hub for a solo recording setup.
Anyway, great work Marshall/Softube, really hope you develop the line further.
Quick 4 part question: A) can I use the USB to get a line level signal into my PC that my digital interface will push to my powered monitors?
B) when using USB is the cabinet speaker muted?
C) must my DAW be open to make this work?
D) in this USB mode, can the CODE 100 be operated without speakers connected?
When I connect my Code 50 to my PC via USB, it only plays the left audio of music but not the right audio. This problem does not persist when connected via Bluetooth to my phone.
hi, i got the marshall code 25, it stopped working when i connected it to my laptop right after i updated the firmware, i think there was a problem with the usb cable, now the amp doesn't respond to anything, and no sount comming out of it, i tried to factory reset stiil no responce, when i turn it on, i get on the screen marshall, then B0.6 , M0.0 , D1.1 , then CHK USB, now i was wondering if there is anything i can do to get it to work again just in case if the new usb wont work, please help
I just got Marshall Code 25 and I m using it with Reaper. For 2 days it was working just perfect. But, in All of sudden everything collapsed, a lot of delay and reverb... I don`t know what happened. I`ve checked audio settings.... Nothing !!! Please if you have any clue let me know. I appreciate it .
Ps: PC Windows 10 Pro - RAM 8G - Memory 500G - 64bit
EDIT: found out that when I put my amp in bluetooth pairing mode it stops. Sound also comes out the speaker itself. So it's something internal for sure
I have a CODE 100C and when I connect it to my interface with the HP out (or even the fx send -- or even when using the HP out as a HP out) I have this high end hiss/artifact.
Here is a recording of the sound: https://youtu.be/a9mjRFiqVX0
obviously it's not as loud as in the video.. but it's still there
Recording with the HP out is the best way for me to elimante latency, but the sound quality is just bad. Also with USB I can't get acceptable latency..
Hi Guys and Gals and the Marshall Team... I am trying to connect my Marshall CODE Amp to my Laptop via a USB Data Cable but its saying "CODE: Not Connected".. Any Solutions for a fix??? Do i need to PAIR my code amp with bluetooth again????? Thanks Ben
I am looking to connect my code 25 to my laptop and hence looking for the correct USB cable type/spec. Should I buy a USB type A or type B?
I am trying to record my guitar on studio one connected thru' code 25. since code 25 does not have its own driver, i have installed ASIO4all driver, which is allowing studio one to detect the code as an input device, when I am connecting the code 25 thru' the USB port to my laptop.
unfortunately , when i am trying to record my guitar, no input is detected in the DAW and the file recorded is a blank one.
Am I missing something here or is there a studio one specific setting to allow recording thru' code 25?
Thanks for an early reply
Hello everyone, i have a code 100 combo and it has a FX loop so i use a D/O pedal in front as a preamp, the amp and cab and then i have the effects in the fx loop, sonds amazing and i'm very happy with it, now the problem is when i try to record with my PC using the USB conector from the Code into my DAW, the result is nice i have the great sound from the code but it doens't record nothing from the FX Loop so all the modulation effects, delays and revs cannot be record it, i can hear them when i'm playing but when i hear the track in my PC, all the fx are not record it, is there something i can do with it?, Thanks.
I just bought a Code. I can connect via bluetooth however it won't download any patches because it says it's not connected even though it is. I bought the USB #2 cable (that doesn't come with the amp) and the amp still says it's not connected to my computer even though it is. Other modeling amps don't have this issue. Marshall, you REALLY dropped the ball on this amp.
Hello Marshall! I have a problem with my Code 25. For several months everything was fine, I could connect it to a computer and use it in DAW, but recently the next time I connected it, the computer stopped detecting it. I tried 3 different usb cables, but that didn't help. Please help me, I love my code.
P.S. Sorry for the English, I used a translator, since I am from Russia and do not know the language well.
Can you download user patches from your phone via blu tooth or do you do you have to connect your device via USB cable?
2nd question - if it is connected to USB cable, does it work normally? I ask because I had a line 6 that required a printer type USB cable, I bought several and none of them worked. I'm wondering if the Marshall Code 50 is this finicky too.
I have tried everything to do the firmware update on my new Code 25. Its showing v1.11 still.
I have tried Crome, Edge, and downloading the manual windows exe. I have updated drivers, booted amp in "safe mode" (which identified usb as READY but still wonnect connect in My.Marshall
Please help! I love the amp but need to be able to update the firmware
