So I bought a Marshall CODE 50 a bit ago, and with nearly device I've tried - there seems to be a lot of issues with getting the gateway app to connect to the amplifier in general (most of the time it doesn't work - despite pairing just fine).
I've tried this on the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPad 5th generation, iPhone 7+ - The connection issues seem to stem from the apps use of Btle on these devices.
To experiment, I built an application that connects to the amplifier via bluetooth for Windows, and issues commands to the amplifier through the PC. This application uses a "classic" (SPP /RFCOMM) socket connection to send commands. The application works perfectly fine via this means - it can be seen running below:
As an experiment - is there a way to force the mobile applications (if it isn't using a btclassic / rfcomm connection) to use a btclassic connection as opposed to btle?
Thanks and all the best,

Hello. I just bought a code 50, and been trying to connect the Bluetooth but it simply doesn´t work. No Code50 is found in the list.
I have a Sony Xperia L, with the newest Android version (7+), but i can´t download the Marshall Gateway App from the Play Store, cause it says it´s not compatible with my Android version.
I´ve read the forums, and more people seem to have the same problem. Please FIX so i can try using the full potential of my amp...
Hi, my Code 50 USB has stopped working, nothing wrong with the USB port because it still charges the phone - tried two cables, no luck. So now I'm trying to figure out how to play songs through it via Bluetooth but *&^%%%%### no luck - how the hell do you do it? I've downloaded the Marshall Gateway app to my android but all i get is my phone icon and an arrow to the amp icon. DO I have to do something on the amp?
I need some help with the Bluetooth connectivity. I hold down Reverb/Power on the amp turning on the Bluetooth feature and I tell Gateway to Scan for Amps and I get nothing. My Iphone Bluetooth is on.
Hi, Is there a way to reduce the power on a Code 25 from 35w down to 5w or 1w like you get on modelling amps from 'other' manufacturers?
To use as a practice amp in my home, I'm having to set the master volume and volume controls really low on the amp and still dial it back on the guitar to the point it is affecting the tone of the preset.
Since this was not obviously available on the top panel, I wondered if it was available via the app but I can't find it if it is.
Thanks in advance.
My phone connects to the amp perfectly with Bluetooth, and can listen to my music etc.
But my gateway app cannot find my CODE amp. I've tried everything. deleted and reinstalled app. reset my amp.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
I phone 6 user here, latest software installed. Latest firmware installed in the CODE 50 as well. I can connect the amp and my phone via Bluetooth, but the Gateway app doesn’t even acknowledge my code to connect with it. I have tried everything I have seen in these forums from un-installing to re-installing to restarting, turning off and on. I really like this amp but this is pretty frustrating, it worked when I first got it but for some reason not anymore. Any fixes for this?
When I connect Phone via bluetooth, I can not see a presets, only "tab to sync" when I tab it is shows this one and one or two more, but the rest is still tab to sync. Next connecting and all presets list is tab to sync again. Code do not want to synchronized with gateway. Do you have any idea how to change that?
I have a Code 100 and my instructor has Code 25 amps. I neeed a consise explaination of how to copy a preset from a Code 25 to my Code 100. So far, the tutorials and FAQs have been more confusing than helpful. I have the Marshall Android app and can connect to the Codes but have not method of copying setup from one to another.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
How do I get the user presets that others created on to my CODE. The app only shows what is onboard the amp itself. I have saved some on the site but can not get them to the phone nor can i see them on the app at all.
como puedo acceder al gateway del ampli (code 25) para re acomodar los preset a mi gusto
ya que la paguina solo puedo ver el gateway de la nube
Bluetooth connection is not very good in my opinion.
Bleutooth signal code 25 is ok, samsung s8 detects it alright.
But when i use the gateway android app it doesn't connect altough it shows in app as detected.
Is there a patch upcomming for the amp code series?
When you activate bluetooth on the amp the code number that is displayed, must it be entered somewhere. I have your app loaded down on a smartab. I press "scan for amps" and nothing...all the time no connection...would appreciate some feedback...thanks
I upgrade to Android 7.0
Bluetooth is ok (blue light fixed) but impossible to connect Gateway to my Code.
It worked with old Android version.
What can I do?
I've only had my Code 25 for a few weeks now and finally updated the firmware yesterday. Wondering where the promised '13 new presets' were (still only the original 99 on the Code), I started poking around here. Here I've found the 13 new official presets, as well as some other user made ones I'm interested in. But as stated in the subject, I need some help.
First, I chose the Add to My Library Option. Here on the desktop , I see 11 tones (wrong number, but not the biggest issue) have been added to My Library. But when I actually look in the Gateway, again, it's the same original 99 tones. I don't see any of the new ones anywhere. So I'm obviously not able to get these via Gateway right now.
Via the cable, I'm able to sample these new presets. I choose individual presets from the website, load them on the Code (one at a time) and hear what they sound like. But turn the amp off and on and they're gone again. I've tried synching, but that doesn't seem to change anything.
Things seem to be working mostly the way they're supposed to. But I'm clearly missing a finally step or two. I'd like to get at least some of these new (Official/User) presets into my Gateway and onto my Amp. Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Clearly, the simpler the explanation the better.
I'd appreciate any assistance. If appropropriate, feel free to call me 'Dummy', 'Idiot' whathave you.
I just bought a code 50, downloaded the gateway app and tried to connect it to my galaxy note8. I find that the app connects my note8 to the amp as an audio player (I can play songs in my note8's music library through the amp) but it will not connect the note8 to the amp as an amp controller. In other words, I can play music through my amp but not control the amp's settings. Even though the note8's bluetooth settings shows the amp is paired, the app says it's not connected. I've followed the instructions found in the code 50 users manual as well as the instruction founs in the app itself several times to no avail. Can you help please? Thank you.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced this issue, I bought my CODE 100 brand new back in November and after about a week of having it, the sound began to mute in the middle of my playing for one to two minutes. Turning the amp off and back on seems to be a temporary fix but the problem still occurs. I have also tried to see if there was a difference in having my CODE connected to the app, and it seems like the amp goes longer with keeping sound while connected to the app but it still mutes ocassionally. I also have the latestest firmware.
I have an iPad 2. I can connect my Code 50 via the iPad's bluetooth settings. It pairs perfectly fine. But when I try to connect to the amp in the Gateway app, nothing happens. I can't see the amp and can't connect to it. Is there a fix for this?
I just bought the CODE 50 and like it alot; I also have the GATEWAY APP on my phone.
(FYI: I literally must have 25-30 other Top Notch Amps- MARSHALLS / SOLDANO / HUGHES KETNNER / LINE 6 etc;
But I needed something very small for some of the tiny gigs we do; and I feel the CODE has better "Sounds" than my Fender Mustang GT - was using)
-I just created 15-10 CUSTOM PRESETSon the CODE. They are obviously saved on my CODE 50 AMP ....as Presets 1 -25;
-BUT: HOW DO I ALSO SAVE/STORE THEM TO MY GATEWWAY IPHONE APP???!! (aka; so I don't "lose' them, in case I want to use on another Code Amp, etc.?)
(Basically I'm afraid if I do it wrong; I'll restore the Factory Presets onto my Amp and all my work will be lost!)
-AND; if I do that; will MY PRESESTS stay in my "APP"; even when the Amp is turned off and not connected to App?
Please let me know and thanks (and any other Suggestions or INTEL!)!

Hi, I want to know if there is any development that will make phones like mine compatible with the Marshall App, it would be a huge disappointment if I cannot get to use the app since my phone is modern and running Android 6. I'm writing this before even having turned on my brand new Code 25. It says your device is not compatible with this version on google play; get this fixed for us people! it's 21 century for Gods sake! thank you.
