I just recently got a nice Code 25. And I am trying to record the sound through USB with Sonar Producer 8 in windows 10 OS. However, Sonar wont recognize Code. There are 3 options for audio devices in Sonar, which is MME, WDM KS and ASIO. When it switched to ASIO, Code is not shown at all, but when switched to either MME or WDM, Sonar tells me error in the Code USB driver with 2 options, "disabled" or "use anyway". And if I choose use anyway, Code will be shown but can not be selected as input for audio channel.
Checked the support from Sonar, Marshall Code has not listed in their support/download site.
Here is the address : www.cakewalk.com/support/hardwaresetup.
Anybody has solution for this?
Note : No problem at all for playback from windows to Code. Only problem for recording.
Any help or opinion will be appreciated.
Hi Marshall team,
I successfully connected my code 25 via USB on Windows 8.1
It's recognized by Windows, you can see it as CODE on device manager.
My problem is, when loading Cubase 8 AI (I have the latest updated version) you can't select CODE drivers (or as an audio interface)
Once you are inside Cubase normally if you go to device setup CODE should be there on the list. Since I can't select it as an input source by anyways I can't record anything.
The process was very smooth with Yamaha thr10 or with some other audio interfaces.
Can you please help me how to use my CODE as input device, or as an audio interface. (I also have the latest firmware updated)
I have a question on the Marshall Code 50 amp. Is it possible to connect the amp with a usb cable to a pc (Windows 10) and be listening to anything on the pc's soundcard, YouTube, media player, etc. and play guitar through the amp at the same time?
Has anyone had any success in using the CODE 50 with Propellerhead's Reason DAW via the USB connection?
My Windows laptop recognizes the CODE 50 when I hook it up, but Reason doesn't recognize it as a valid audio input that I can record from. I'm thinking it may be an ASIO issue. I know I can just run the headphone out of the CODE 50 into my Focusrite audio interface, but I was just curious about the USB option.
I bought Marshall CODE 25, connect USB cabel to PC, install ASIO4ALL driver, run Nuendo 4.3, driver Control panel show MONO IN - STEREO OUT, record fine but there is no stereo streaming from PC to headphones, only MONO. Everything is OK in Nuendo Audio Control Panel. I try with Media Player with MP3 files, same problem, only MONO. Try Abletone Live - same problem.
Is this normal for this amp, or mailfunction?
Hi, Although My laptop recognizes My code 50 via usb, nuendo 4.3 doesn't (although it recognizes My zoom and korg asio).
Therefore, I'm unable to assign the code has an input for recording via usb. Thanks.
I've been recording on garageband and other softwares for a long time already!
However, I've bought this (crappy) amp to record via USB on these DVAs I'm used to work with. SO, aparently, after questioning people who uses the same amp, and here on the forum, NOBODY could explain the real reason why this "amp" won't work for recording via usb!
The TWO computers I use (macbook and PC - windows7) reconize the amp, however NO SOUND AT ALL are recorded!
I am familiar with LINE 6 products and I use them a lot. No problem at all with this gear! But MARSHALL, the most famous brand of amps on the world, releases an amp promising to do something they aparently are not able to!
Lame amp! recently bought and, hopefully, recently SOLD! Waste of my time and money!
Bought a Code 25 few days ago. Plugged into my computer via usb, using garageband, and the funny thing happens. First, garageband does reconize the amp, however, no sound comes in or out. The volume on the channel of the amp won't work either.
Anyway, assuming it was a conflict between the amp and garageband, I tried it on reaper. Same problem, DAW reconizes the amp, no sound comes in or out.
Another test, the firmware. Did upgraded it, nothing happened again.
Any solution? I bought this amp exclusively to record via usb, and the main function for me isn't working. Dammit!
I was using the usb connection to record on Audacity. The guitar I was using was a Fender Strat with noiseless pups. I found that the signal stregth was really low and the only way I could get a decent recorded signal was to turn up the master volume to an unbearable level and was close to getting a stern talking to from my better half. I then tried the same process but used some headphones and this sorted the level issue so it recorded a strong signal. There was still a bit of crackle on the recording but much improved from the last firmware release.
I then recorded some acoustic guitar without headphones. This was a martin DRs1 with a stock fishman pup. Signal strength was really good and the quality was great. No hum or hiss or crackle.
Great to hear others experiences.
I can download and run the firmware updater on my Win 10 laptop - it then asks me to connect my CODE 25 amp. I connect the amp using a USB cable - then I see the message "An error occurred: An error occurred getting the device information from your CODE. Please try switching your amp off, and then switching it back on again."
I switch it off and on - no good. Same problem. I connect the CODE amp before running the firmware utility - same result. So I don't even know what firmware is currently in there. Is this solvable? BTW - the USB cable works, as my Marshall CODE Live Editor has connected to the amp using it.
Is there a capability to control the Code 25 via USB MIDI???
Thanks in advance...
I'm having troubles connecting the marshall code to my computer. I'm usings a USB mini-b cable and I cant get the program to work after I follow the procedures. Am I using the right cable?
I'm using Windows 10, and the Amp says "USB" when plugged into PC. I installed the window app, but all it says is "please connect your Code..,". I checked device manager and it says " Unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed). I tried uninstall, reboot, reload, etc., and different USB ports ,but nothing works.
Hi, I want to record using my code to PC using the usb. What is the best free software for doing this (is audacity any good ?). Any other suggestions would be helpful.
So the amp is great and all, except for the noise introduced via the USB interface and the lack of user-made patches and stuff. So when can we expect a software update to be released? It's been quite a while since the amp was released and I would very much appreciate a fix. Also, will more amp models be added down the line? Cheers.
So...just got my new code 25 the other day and bluetooth hooked up great....played a couple of days and no problems....Tonight..cant get it to hook up. Any ideas?...Can I ultimatley just hook up USB to my computer and adjust fromt there?
Any plans to release a Windows desktop app for managing presets via USB connection? I'm not an Android or iPhone user. Editing via amp panel is ok, but somewhat tedious.
I am experiencing terrible interference when trying to use my Code 50 via Bluetooth / Gateway (Apple) App while recording on my Mac in Logic Pro X. I am using a microphone to record the Code 50 and using the Bluetooth to change patches. The clicks/pops/noise/interference is loud enough to interfere with the recording process. Perhaps a DESKTOP (Apple) Gateway App via Code USB might be a solution for all users experiencing similar issues? I am running the most current Firmware. Any current solution to my noise issues? Thank you.
I'm currently experiencing a problem where the amp locks up on a regular basis. When it happens, none of knob (gain/low/mid/high/volume) and button (pre FX/amp/mod/del/etc) settings take any effect: e.g I can set a mod effect, but the sound doesn't change.
The amp is paired with my iPad, but when this happens, the iPad is not connected and not even in range. It seems to be related to having the amp connected to my iMac via USB: after frequent cases of this happening, I unplugged the USB cable and the problem instantly went away.
On the code 50 there is an option to edit the presets but this is not on the 25. Is there still a way to edit presets?
Can the usb be used for anything other than recording?
