Just saying: I find these almost-daily advertisement-posts in this forum very very disappointing. Let alone today - up to now - six such posts, that have nothing to do with Marshall or our concerns and questions!
I think we need a better watchkeeper here.
every company who sells digital amp made some upgrade with more amp or efx or cabinet or upgrade a better firmware with better tones. you do nothing! I've asked you - almost one year ago -, by mail, if marshall was programming an upgrade and in your mail you answered yes..I think was untrue, it's the worst support I've ever seen in digital amplification.
Ok Marshall we bought your product thinking it would be a good product. With trusted support. You have failed your customers and your products with no support for the code amps that your customers bought. And now most are stuck with a half working amp that they can't sell or not happy with. When will you get off your butts and fix the amps with a firmware update? And support the product and the consumers? Let us know so we can either stick it out or move on to another product.
I have the Code 25, and just installed the latest updates (1.44) to the firmware. However, I still cannont get the Gateway app to recognize the amp. I am connected via blue tooth as I can play music from my Android phone over the amp, but the controls from the app don't work at all. Again, when I search it does not find an amp. Help?
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.
for an amp company that makes amazing amps that sound even more amzing with a cranked out fuzz in front of them, im suprised to find that the marshall code (i have a 50) does NOT have any type of fuzz!! this may be there are hundreds of different fuzzes and each one has a different sound, but they could at least have a generic fuzz, like a big muff clone, or mxr blue box. so marshall, PLEASE add a fuzz, an octave fuzz, and for us jack white fans, a microamp boosted fuzz!! or any code users have any presets for these effects??
My Code 25 cannot communicate with my phone via Marshall Gateway. The software cannot find and connect to the amplifier as if there was no bluetooth connectivity, but there is as I can listening to music via that. I use Galaxy A5 android.
Could you help me to solve the problem?
I recide to open my code 50 cabinet. It was not just a simple sound change matter. For me this cabinet is the low point in the project. With this upgrade I believe now th speaker moves freely. Of coarse you have all those open cabinets advantage, more crystallinity, less punch low freequencies, more spacial sound distribution (less directionality)... For me the stage effect was quite positive. Some time ago I was really deciding to kick it out but now I am very satisfied with this little amp.
Boss is in version 3 of it's Katana amps:
Fender Mustang GT is in version 2:
Are there any plans to upgrade the Code to 2. 0 to include additional amps and effects?
Actually I'm totaly not interested in bluetooth connection, but of course I understand that it might be an essential prolem for some people...
But there are some other problems I'd like you to find good solution for.
1. Master volume. From 0 to 10% there is almost no sound, over 10% it becomes very loud.
2. Decreasing sound level with Volume pot results in decreasing USB signal level - not acceptable for players using USB output for recording in DAW software. It would be nice if for clean preamp gain at 2 and volume at 3 give recording level about -6 dB, now it is about -36 dB...
Best regards, Jacek.
P.S. What is a frequency range of CODE 25 speaker?
Hi, I need a little help, I'm a newbie on this...
I know my code 50 doesn't have a "line out" but it features a headphone out, can I conncet the amp to a Yamaha mixer? I want to control my guitar volume with the mixer, plus a mic and an acoustic guitar.
If that is possible, how should I set the master volume, the preset volume and the gain in my marshall?
Today I tried to play my Marshall code 50 and noticed that there is acutally no sound coming through.
I already changed the cable to make sure that the cable is alright.
I also noticed that there is no Headphone sound and the amp tuner is not working neither.
The speaker makes the normal light buzzing noise when turned on, so I assume that it is not about the speaker.
I did a firmware update just now, but I didn't help.
I really don't know what to do anymore. I barely played the amp and never transported it neither.
Why it is suddenly not working is a mystery to me.
If you have any advice please let me know.
I would like to knwo if there is a way to sync the MY GATEWAY presets and the Marshall CODE presets all at once?
I came here and downloaded a bunch of presets from the comunity and now there are like 30 presets in my phone, but these presets are not in the amp memory.
I could go one by one, saving the preset on the amp memory but I want to know if there is a way to do it all at once.
One click and all the app presets are equal to the amp presets
thnaks in advance guys
I visited the dealer recently and tried another CODE 25 amp in the shop with the same latest FW version.
The same bluetooth behavior was observed (as described in many threads here, for example this ).
If you insist that it's a HW problem - please make an official statement that CODE 25 amps with serial numbers XX-XX have faulty Bluetooth Modules and you would like to recall/replace it. I think you can easily check your production and make a quality check on this case.
I think there are only few ways forward:
- a FW update with a fix, promised a long time ago. Is it really so hard to rollback a piece of code, revert some changes from the latest FW update?
- official recall, so that we just return it and get a 100% working unit instead.
- make the firmware code open source, so that we could fix it ourselves and make further improvements.
Have any of you CODE amp owners found a good Robin Trower preset? Thanks.
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.
Just a warning (possibly more a bit of advice maybe):
I noticed over the weekend that sometimes (not always) when retrieving a patch from a CODE amp. the Marshall CODE PC Editor does not always get it right. Sometimes it will load perfectly and other times it's almost as if it's retrieved some, not all, of the settings for the patch. I only noticed this after retrieiving some presets, making a change or two, and then overwriting on the amp. with the incorrect settings and I thought I was going bonkers because I checked and re-checked what I was doing but whenever I saved on the amp. sometimes one or two of the parameters were not as I set them. It seems to do the same when loading a saved patch from disk too. Wasted hours!!!
Anyway: the easy workaround really is to just keep clicking on the retrieve button until there are no more changes to any of the parameters of the preset being shown on the screen (normally only need to do it twice but three is a lucky number). Make your changes then save back to the amp. (I've resorted to doing this three times too just for safety sake). And when loading from disk: get into the habit of doing it three times too!!!
I'll try get their support to have a look at it (although things seem every so quiet over there).
I mention the above because even although we all know the this is not a Marshall Amplication PLC product and is not supported by them: it is indeed punted on these forums quite widely (by myself too).
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!
I am wondering if anyone has a preset that will work for using an external effects pedal into my Code 50? I only want to run the external effects (distortion, reverb, delay) and nothing fromthe amp itself. What I am seeing is that even with all effects (amps, modeling, etc.) turned off on the Code my pedal into it sounds like garbage. Very muffled, bassy, and muddy. I have the EQ on the amp set so that the bass is all the way down and mid/tebble are all the way up and it still sounds terrible. I don't want to have to edit and mess with every patch on my old Zoom GFX8. The pedal doesn't sound like this into my old 40 Watt Fender bassman.
Any advice on setting up the Code to sound good with external effects would be greatly appreciated.
