Hello guys, i own a marshall code 25 since last summer and about one week now as i play the sound dies sudenly. The amp seems to work all the knobs,the footswitch but no sound at all. The sound comes back when i restart it but after 5-10 minutes of playing same thing happens. I have installed the latest firmware. Does anyone else has the same problem? Any advices would be pretty much apriciated. I bought the amp from andertons, i sent them an email like 3 days ago but no answer yet. Is there any warranty?
I just recieved my Code 50, and am still trying to learn how to use it. The main thing I'm interested in doing and learning is using an expression pedal to go between sets but am not sure how to go about it. I was told I may need to get the additional Code footswitch to make that possible. Help please!
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!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
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
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.
How Can I Program the Tuner on CODE Foot Controller? Thanks!
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.
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.
Is it possible to reset the footswitch to factory settings?
I really do not understand...should be the easiest thing to do...but it isn't....please help
I note that my previous post in this regard has dissapeared "as if by magic". So I ask again:
What is happening with the Marshall CODE100 i.e. when will it be released???
What is happening with the PEDL-91010 footswitch (for both the CODE100 and the other CODE amps.)???
I'm sorry but I have to express the below:
Support, or lack thereof, when it comes to the CODE amps. is concerning to say the least. I have no less than 4 x CODE amps. and not to mention the various other Marshall amps. I've had over the years from time to time. I think I (we) deserve answers when questions are asked. I (we) certainly don't need posts deleted when Marshall is "put on the spot" as it were.
Got a Code 50 and footswitch. Still learning it, but happy so far.
I'd like to use the footswitch, in part, to jack up the volume for solos, but keeping the preset and effects the same. What's the best way to set that up?
I am using a CODE 50 and i am happy.
My experience is very good, of course this is not a HIGH END amp neither the real ones that CODE emulated, but for the price its an amazing amp, and for what i need, playing at HOME at lower volumes with quality and flexibility. Its a very nice solution to have in a very easy and cheap way some historical Marshall amps tones, and again this is not the REAL AMPS of course, but the quality and the price are very very GOOD.
I am using tradicional pedals running in front of the amp, due the absence of effects loops i am even running delay in front. The only effect that i am using from the CODE is the reverb.
Now comes one of the best thinks for me, i am using Marshall Footswitch, and i create 6 banks of presets for my taste :-) please see the photo. With this i can have imediatly diferent amps with the presets that i made, i event put some hang tags identifiyng the names of the presets.
To record i use 2 SM57, and my main guitar is fender 60 anniversary commemorative stratocaster.
I have sereval other amps, all valves, but again to play in home, record, jam, and so on, this setup is one of the best that i done.
Keep rock in a free world !!
I have 2 x Marshall CODE50's and a Marshall CODE25. I also have 1 x Marshall Footswitch (PEDL-91009). I run the 2 x Marshall CODE50's together (signal from guitar simply being split using a stereo delay pedal). Any ideas how I could control both of the CODE50's with 1 footswitch (just to scroll / change presets up / down on both amps at the same time without having to use two seperate footswitches as this is not practical live)???
Dear Marshall Team,
I just get my footswitch and it comes with interconnceting cable and work just fine.
When I check the cable, it just normal cable with 2 wires in it. And I believe it is used to power up the footswitch with some DC voltage. I am curious how the digital data was transfered between the amp and the switch. Is it through the same wires or wirelessly?
If it is wireless, can I supply the DC power to the footswitch (at front of the stage) and put the amp on the back? What is the voltage and polarity?
