I'm trying to figure out how to use tap tempo on the footswitch with my marshall CODE amp.
As I understand it, I should be able to "stomp" in the tempo of my delay via the footswitch.
I have no idea how to do this though.
I have looked for a definite answer to this and have not found one. I played my amp the other night with no problems, but last night as I turned on the amp it just died on me as soon as I turned the standby off. There was no noise, pops, crackles, fizzes. It just turned off. I checked the main fuse and it was blown. I have not had any issues with tubes and they have not shown any signs of wearing out. I made sure my amp was connected to the cab correctly (remember i have had this rig for 8 years) and that I had a speaker cable rather than a guitar cable. I found online there could be issues with impedence and what not. I took the back off of my cab and noticed that a positive lead on one of my v30's became disconnected. I thought, 'Could it be?" So I reconnected it and replaced the fuse and the amp worked as advertised. I played for an hour or so and no problems yet. Could it be that the discoonnected positive lead on one speaker caused it to blow a main fuse?
Why in the world would Marshall advertise right on their site for the code amps that you can record the code amp into your DAW, but not provide an asio driver? This is false advertising. Yes there is asio4all, it is not for a Marshall per se, and it doesn't work real well, it only records at 48khz, most daws will go to 96k, if not all the way to 192K? What gives Marshall? Plase put out an Asio driver for this otherwise great product. please. It can't be that hard if you can write the"code" for this amp. You are relly missing the boat here guys
I see many other presets available form other people that are NOT Marshall assigned presets. Most of these have a different name like a user name assigned by their creator. How on earth does one name their own or edited preset so it can be assigned to the CODE and into the footswitch. I specifically DO NOT want to save the edited preset under the original name like American OD or Plexi. I would like my own name like - Heavy Classic 1 and Heavy Classic 2 or 3.
Code 50 Amplifier. Recently purchased.
Using the headphone jack, the volume output to headphones is quite low. I have to increase the Code 50 Main control as well as the guitar volume control when I plug in headphones. Is this normal for the Code 50? I use Audio Technica ATH-M30X (47 ohm) studio monitor headphones, as well as AKG (32 ohm) phones.
I do not have this issue using my other amplifier, which is a Fender amp. With that amp, very little volume adjustment is needed when I plug in my phones.
As pointed out in these blogs the Code series locks up during editing and doesn't have an app for Mac users. These issues go back to al least June of this year. When is Marshall going address these issuse other than saying "a solution is coming soon?" I recently purchased a Code 50 but I am not going to hold on to it if Marshall is not going to support it.
I just recently purchased a Marshall Code 25 and when i tried to use headphones(all 3 of them, of extremely good quality and every day use) the sound is terrible.
What might be the problem, and are any of the marshall headphones good for that amp? Does the Code need some kind of specific headphones?
I hope someone can please help me here.
I have tried to use various methods in connecting my code 25 via USB to my windows 10 with no luck.
Can someone please tell me how I can do this because I just purchased the amp a week ago for primarly recording and I cannot get it to work.
It played my track out of the code speaker for a moment but thats all. I continue to get errors from windows saying that the USB is not recognized,
I have ASIO drivers installed and use reaper as a recording interface.
Please help! I would be much appreaciative !!!
Yesterday, I went to my local guitar shop and purchased a Code 100 2x12 Combo and it came with a two-way footswitch. I assumed it would work with it considering I knew it came with a footswitch. However, the footswitch doesnt do much. The effects side does nothing to my amp and when I press the Normal / OD side twice, it will change my amp preset in reverse. For example, if I'm using my JCM 800 tone and I press the Normal / OD button twice, it will go to preset 99. Did they give me the wrong footswitch? Was I supposed to receive the Code programmable footswitch instead and the retail clerk didn't know what he was doing? Or is there a way to program the two way footswitch so it actually can be used effectively rather than a paperweight with a long cable on it? Please let me know as this has been frustrating for me. I play live shows and have shows coming up and can't afford to not have a footswitch.
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"
Here are the videos of the defect
This amp sounded like this since day one I always thought it was maybe just the effects but soon realised after using the clean channel turning off all the fx and amps and also having people look at it I realised that theres something seriously wrong with it. I tried contacting you guys for that 5 year warranty especially since its defective but have not gotten a response. Its been almost a year that I've been trying to figure whats wrong with it but even person I ask has no clue I've searched and searched and have found no such issue similar to mine. I would like to get an explaination of the issue and see if there is a solution or maybe a replacement if possible thank you.
I broke out my old mg 30dfx and bought the PEDL-90008 for it but nothing happens when I plug it in. Is that the correct footswitch for my amp?
I've got a (not very big) problem with recordnig music via USB. I use only clean sound, typical settings for my guitar equipped with 2x Wilkinson WVC humbuckers are:
preamp - DSL, gain - 2.0 (increasing gain over 2.5 makes sound NOT as clean, as I want it to be), volume - 10, B/M/T - 7/10/5, noise gate - 0.5
power amp - American, presence - 2, resonance - 6
I tried Audacity and Presonus Studio One, and in both cases recording level is about -20dB. Of course I can normalize volume in post processing to let's say -3dB and I still have quite satisfactory quality, but I loose this 17dB of signal/noise ratio.
Any suggestion how to increase USB output level?
Is there any way to reduce the wattage on the code 50. 50 watts is tremendously loud and I can not get the "sweet spot" with out rattling the windows. I know the alternative is the CODE 25 but I am hesitant with the 10" speaker. Any suggestions?
I have had my amp JCM 2000 TSL 122 combo for a few years. I used it occasionally when I first acquired it (around 2008) and then fairly regularly in a band for about a year in 2009/20010. It was then put in my wardrobe and came out to use ocaasionally for a couple of gigs and then went back in the wardrobe until earlier this year.
In 2016 I have gotten together with some friends to form a new covers band and we have rehearsed at pretty big rehearsal room volume with live drums etc. at an average of 2 rehearsals a month since March.
Today, I started to set my amp up as usual - plugged in and turned on with standby. Took off stanby with all 3 channel gains and volumes at ZERO. 1st channel (Clean) some gain + some volume (uaual position around 2 and a bit....rarely get it to 3, haha!) and it made all the usual signs of working well and giving me a great clean sound.
Turned to the other guitarist for a quick conversation about pics he bought on e-bay and I found my volume dropped!!??!!
I checked leads, connections, another guitar, but my Marshall is not doing what it has been doing. Our other guitarist put his guitar through it and it needed almost full gain and full volume on each channel to get any volume on the output.
I turned ot off and used an amp that the rehearsal studio had available. Effects and leads all good, so the issue is definitely the amp.
Am I experiencing a dead valve, or set of valves, or could it be something more sinister? This is my first valve amp and appreciate that these things are much more sucsceptible to issues and need much more maintenance than their solid state counterparts.
Any advice on this would be much appreciated. I have searched the issue and found that there are some sites with negative thoughts towards the JCM 200 series and the TSL 122 in particular with biasing issues etc., but what I am reading is going over my head a little, but looks quite damning???
Thanks for any help,
Habe mein Galaxy s5mini mit dem Code 50 Gekoppelt und kann auch Musik abspielen.
Auf die Gateway App kann ich allerdings nich zugreifen.
Ich Scane for Amps aber die Meldung Not Conneceded erschein immer wieder auf dem Display.
Habe die App schon neu Installiert,aber leider ohne Erfolg.
Wo liegt der Fehler?
Danke für eine Rückmeldung.
Je n'arrive plus a faire reconnaître mon téléphone dans l'appli gateway Marshall
Le téléphone se connecte via bluetooth mais l'appli ne me donne pas accès au réglage / pas de connection
Je ne plus piloter mon ampli avec le téléphone alors que cela fonctionnait parfaitement auparavant.
J'ai fait une mise a jour de l ampli par USB
Quelqu'un rencontré le même problème ?
Merci pour votre réponse.
Hello, I've noticed that the firmware update is only available for windows not mac. Is there any alternative way mac users can update? Or will this be an option in the future?
I have a DSL40C and bought a used 90012 model footswitch. Turns out that switch is meant for the newer DSL40CR. It is tip and ring with two sleeves for the two buttons, but the channel button does nothing. When plugged in the channel button on the amp no longer works, yet the footswitch button does not change the channel either.xvideos.onl/
If you pull the footswitch half way out it causes a channel change.xnxx.onl/
So the question is, does the amp have an issue or is this footswitch just not compatible? It's a two button, tip and ring with two sleeves so in my mind it should work...chaturbate.onl/
Some internet sloothing leads me to a model P802 footswitch that was the one for the DSL40C amp but it seems like the same switch to me...
