The CODE Footswitch manual is not very informative.
I watched all the youtube videos I could find on it but I'm still confused on how some of the functions operate.
Can anyone provide me with a link to a more comprehensive document?
just got an iPad Pro through my job and would live to try and record my code 25 using the micro usb output. Anyone know how I can do this? Does anyone make a cable with a male micro usb on one end and a male lightning connector on the othe end? Do I need a specific interface or can I use some kind of adapter? Can't seem to easily find anything on the ole interwebs about how to do this. TIA.
Hey guys, what would be the best set up for using a loop pedal with a code 50? Is it possible?
OR is there a way to start/stop recording with the looper preset via the footpedal?
Thanks in advance ;)
I have pre-ordered and am paying for the CODE 100 heqad from Sweetwater. Two questions: Are you addressing what seem to be the many issues the platform is experiencing? And is there any update on the release/ shipment date?
Presets need to flow easier between the different management areas.
(Reading the following is really only cumbersome, because that's how cumbersome it is to manage CODE.)
Copying one by one between amp and phone is really cumbersome.
How about an option to copy all 100 presets (or sections) between amp and phone? Both ways.
I want my amp to have the same presets as my phone.
(Others can still have the option the way it is laid out, but I don't see how managing amp and phone separately is useful unless someone really needs 200 different presets in one session.)
I like to have my preset sequenced in a way that makes sense. Artists, cleans, crunch, OD, Amps, or new additions squeezed next to existing ones. Others may sequence by set list or bands. If I shuffle presets on the computer/gateway, then the phone syncs this new sequence, and the amp does not match. Gets confusing.
Additionally, if the footswitch is assigned from the amp, then I have to copy new presets from phone to amp and even reassign to footswitch. Too many steps.
"Just use the presets on the phone and forget amp presets" would be an answer, but what about footswitch? and what about dead or forgotten phones?
Easy (automatic?) sync (with on/off for this auto/sync) between phone and amp, would allow everyone to use the amp (and footswitch) without constantly pulling out the phone and pairing to have presets from the phone available. Bluetooth drains batteries.
Btw, any phone sounds come on the speaker when playing because my iphone6 sees the amp as a headphone. So the presets need to be on the amp for any gigs.
Another footswitch suggestion:
A setting or function where the first 30 presets (01-30, without 00) are loaded into the 10 banks on the footswitch automatically? Then I only have to manage my presets within the 100 and everything else is assigned automatically?
i cant load the persets from my library when i use the app
is there any solution ?!
Hi Marshall Team,
Yesterday I bought a CODE 25 amp and after some quick fiddling with it I'm more than happy with the sounds I can get.
Unfortunately today I wanted to check out the app features and here's where the experience went south.
I am able to connect to the amp via Bluetooth and stream music but when I open the app I don't get the 'Connect' red tab and the 'Menu\Code' section gives no search results regardless of how many times I try.
Before you refer me to the standards - I've tried them. I went through 'close app -> remove from last viewed apps -> unpair BT -> amp off -> amp on-> etc...', I went through same routine but with uninstalling the app and installing it once again. Phone restarts - also done. Hell, I even reinstalled the firmware on the amp (it was the latest one from the very beginning in case you wonder). No success whatosever.
Gateway app - ver. 1.4.2
Phone - Galaxy S7
Android - ver. 6.0.1
Hope you will be able to help.
haven't even received my Code 50 yet and already doubting my decision the way the app is set up...
how do I add the downloaded presets to the app?
[EDIT: figured out how to manage the library]
why do I have to overwrite original presets to create my own?
[EDIT: seeing now how it adds a backup when I copy another preset on top]
would it be too hard to add more empty banks of 100 to the library?
[EDIT: finally figured out how to view and edit the library in 'My Gateway' tab on this site]
why can't I select only some of the presets I want to reset to original settings? It's all or nothing for resetting.
What is the procedure to roll back a recent firmware update on CODE 50?
Will updating the firmware on a CODE 50 change/reset any presets?
Will it do anything to the sound of the CODE 50?
It seems it changes the sound of the CODE 50 any/some?
I just want to check with fellow CODE users if they are facing the same issues that I am dealing with.
Biggest (and most annoying) issue is, it's a matter of luck connecting the CODE through USB. 2 times out of 10 my pc recognizes the amp the first time I plug it in. Mostly it gives an error that device is not connected properly or not recognized by windows. So I end up unplugging and plugging again until (if ever) it's been recognized. (Using windows 8.1 btw) Then suddenly in the middle of a recording session my DAW starts to drag like if I am running on a PC Pentium 600. (It's running on a 3000$ alienware) This is a sign that somehow CODE get disconnected itself. Now you have only option left: Restart the PC and start all over again.
So far I have checked with different USB cables, and I am using the shortest ones as possible as I can. (less than 80 cm.) I can't check with another pc since I don't have another one, but I am running Yamaha THR-10 smoothly, without any problems at all!
So I don't believe that there's an issue with my pc. And speaking of THR, why the hell CODE doesn't have it's dedicated USB drivers. I am kind of sure that the issue I am facing is all about the ASIO drivers that we are left with as an only option.
Second issue is, maybe only 1 out of 20 times I am able to get any presets from web site. Even if it looks like CODE is connected in the Device Manager, and the Chrome (or Opera) says MIDI is connected, I can't send any presets to the amp. After a few tries, this ends up with web browsers got frozen and only option is again: restart your pc!
I really would like to hear from people who are facing similar issues and how they could get over with it. (if they ever could)
And hopefully the only answer I receive from Marshall team is not going to be: "Thanks for your feedback, we will pass this to our technical team"
The usb driver of the code amp is loaded as it is showing device manager. But when I switch to this in cubase I cant allocate input busses.
just bought a CODE 50. My iPhone 7 just doesn't recognize the amp via Bluetooth and viceversa ... What could be the problem? Any suggestions?
Appreciate your help
How do you assign the tuner to the footswitch?
I need to know specifically which devices and versions (Android) are compatible with CODE.
I 'm trying to update firmware via web, the process starts ok but the page says restarting in bootloader mode and the amp screen says ready... this for about 1 hours but nothing changes
Is the CODE Series CODE 100H 100-watt head fitted with a cooling fan? If so, does this cooling fan operate continuously or at variable speeds depending on temperature?
Hey guys, got a quick question.For some reason when i put my footswitch into "switch" mode to access my tuner it will not return to "Bank" mode.In switch mode I have programmed the footswitch to button 1 to Tuner and left the other 2 buttons to default Modulation and Delay.When I go into switch mode I can turn on the tuner no problem but (only when I access the tuner) i try to return to bank mode,it will not respond.The only way i can get the footswitch to respond out of tuner mode is to physically turn the Amp's power on then off.I do not have this problem if i want to change the Modulation button or the Delay button. Do i need to do an uprgrade to fix this problem or is my switch defective ? Please help ! Thanks again !!
Hello, can anyone tell me which brand / model of speaker is used in code 25?
I'm very new to the Code 50 amp. In fact, I only owned one amp before this, and had no effects pedals, so I'm very new to this sort of stuff.
I'm trying to work out the different effects and how they really sound, so my question is this: Do you have suggestions (maybe known songs or bands) that the different presets would sound like? For example (and this is not accurate, just an example), the Old School preset is similar to what was used in the verses of My Sharona.
Any suggestions from any of you?
