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.

Hello,

is there a solution for a better adjusting the Master Volume of the Code 50 . Actually i turn the Master Volume to 1, if i turn it up to 1.4 it's too loud. I don't want to adjust the PreAmp Volume, cause it will change the tone. I want to adjust the overall sound with the Master Volume and keep all the tone settings, no matter if i play at home or with the band. I also read the article "CODE 50 Master Volume Issue " from 26.Oct.2016. Is there a solution in the meantime?

Regards
Wolfgang

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.

Hi guys,

This isn't really a question but a solution to your problems connecting the Code to Studio One for USB recording. I got it to work using ASIO4All.

Here is a quick 2 minute video I made showing how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LC1FAeFyRn8&feature=youtu.be

Marshall, feel free to point people here if they need this solution. Presonus just points them back to you.

Hello Team,

I just bought the Marshall Code25 and tried to update the Firmware via USB.

I have launched the firmware update from the Chrome Navigator and from Windows firmware application. After update performed, Code25 remains to version 1.11 and firmware indicates my CODE firmware is up to date. 

I have notice during the update than first, the version 1.41 is installed (MCU firmware 1.41) and just after a second update is launched installing the version 1.11 (DSP firmware 1.11)

Is it the regular behavior ?

After the update I still have troubles on bluethooth pairing, even if I read this problem should be solved by the update.

Thanks for your help

Regards

Hello Marshall Team,

i figured out following:

If code25 is in pairing mode (pressing REV/POWER),  you can see that code25 sends a device name ( something like "CODE V02004FA6E") within BT message to phone and phone asks for pairing, all works ok.

after switching power off and on again on code25, code25 sends again BT message but without device name, I guess the phone can't compare the device and thats why the paired connection can't be re-established from phone.

I checked this with BluetoothView v1.66 from NirSoft with win10.

best regards,

Peter

Is there any design modification being considered that would have a POWER LEVEL control added to any of the CODE amplifiers?

I am finding it difficult to get the level I want to suit different situations, such as studio, personal practice, session practice, etc., because of the sensitivity of the controls when using the amp at lower volumes.

My VOX has a power level control. It is very useful and allows me to use the other controls at the way I want to generate the tones and guitar response without overall volume issues.

Any comments...?

Having trouble with the high noise floor of the Code series, and fizzy digital artifacts bubbling away in the background ?

Start with any of the 'Clean' preamps, and follow this article to the letter. It helps.

The whole process of downloading a preset, and allocating it to the amp (and saving it) and saving them to My gateway needs a complete re-work. The user interface is really bad, the methodology is not clearly explained and is next to impossible to do if you use a small android device with a small screen.

The library takes up too much screen space, there needs to be a condensed view without the useless pictures so users can manage thier library in a list mode (ideal for smaller devices). The library and my gateway needs to be side by side to drag and drop easier.

The UI on the app and website are really poor designs and could easily be improved with minimal effort. The designer only needs to actually use them to see how terrible the design is currently. Good amp being ruined by terrible UI (website and app).

The app needs to be able to store a preset library so I can keep 1000s of presets with me and download various banks of 99 anytime I need them. Having them on the website introduces a needless step. 

My question is, any chance Marshall can sort this out before I go insane (its all a simple software fix away)?

Hey,

Just got a Marshall Stanmore, and when listening to calmer songs, I can hear a significant amount of distortion. Like a fuzzy overdrive.
Overall, the speaker sounds great, especially on higher volume, but I still can't get over the annoying distortion. Really low-key piano songs are virtually unbearable to listen to. 

Has anyone else had this problem?

Will you ever fix your pathetic Bluetooth conncetivity issues? I have Galaxy 7, but I see it's no diferent n any other platform; your Bluetooth connectivity is downright pthetic; if anyone even manages to connect somehow, the connection drops frequently.  And that's in 2017 when teapots have stable Bluetooth connectivity - are you in Marshall really THAT backward, technologically illiterate, and incompetent?

Dear Marshall Team,

I have just recently got my code and thanks for this really nice amp. I got world class sounds for this low price and again.. thanks.

Gateway really makes me much happier and  I plan to bring it up to stage for small ocassion, without footswitch (not available in my country), with the help of gateway and no need to bring those heavy gears. But I realize that I can not switch from one to another setup in a short time while playing.

So in getaway, I would suggest to add one tab showing 4 buttons which is, in individual mode, bassically on off switch for prefx, mod, delay, and power. And other 2 buttons for bank up and bank down. 

So, if we have 100 preset then it can be grouped and stored into 25banks with four variation that can be selected from those 4 buttons.

Just like the layout of multi effect processor.

Emm... need a switch to select individual or bank mode... and square bright yellow and red lamps for each button.

Emm... and display to show the active bank and sub bank... like 24.2 (bank no.24 patch no.2).

Sorry if it sounds like asking too much.

Did I?

 

Cheers,

Javen
