Always feel modeling amps lack the punch, the pick attack of an analog amp, but the CODE 100 does a good job, but it still sounds a bit like you are listening to a guitar track on a song instead of a live guitar performance.  Thats not a bad thing, the sound is smooth, it is clean, but it is different.   The cleanness of the sound is interesitng actually, the notes are far more distinct,  far less mushy and makes you play much cleaner. 

Thi is in comparison to my IValve King 212 with messa boogie pre amp,  and 6L6  power valves.   Have had it years, but havent been able to get the solo tone I want out of it, it has always sounded harsh, though the messa boogie valves helped.  This is where the  CODE 100 excells, the solo tones are very clear with none of the noise, so tapping for example stantds out very nicely, whereas with the Peavey it was feeding back and very noisy at the levels needed to get any volume.   

After a couple of days playing, the Plexi with gain is my preferd rythym sound and marshall fury with the reverb removed my prefered solo sound.  

Not gigged it,  we are just a jamming group made up of ex band members and having a once a week laugh,  but I can imagine the amp would be fine in any pub type venue. 

I will try it using the Peavey speakers over the weekend,   see what difference that makes.

Hello, I bought a Marshall Code 25 a few weeks back and it was working perfectly until I tried connecting it to a PC today using the USB port. The amp is just not showing up anywhere and the PC doesn't detect a new device either.

I've tried :

- Downloading the firmware update software (current version 1.44) to see if it would detect the amp (it did not)

- Using two different cables and two different PCs

- Restarting the amp and reconnecting the cable on both ends

Not sure what I'm doing wrong or what I should be doing next so help would be appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

I recently just got my Code 25 after many months of waiting for it to be back in stock. I'm loving it! There is so much to play with and so many different tones to explore.

I connected it to my phone and I love the feature of adjusting the settings with my phone. However, when I tried to download presets from the website, it won't let me.

I just wanted to ask, must the amp be plugged into a PC/Laptop in order to download the presets from the website or can this be done with just your phone?

The only reason I ask, is my laptop is very outdated and given that you can do everything on a tablet or phone these days, Iv'e never had the need to buy a new one.

Any help would be great as Iv'e some awesome looking presets I would love to try out.

Thanks.

Is there away to turn off tuner mode? I do not use it and sometimes I go into it by accident.

I have read, when using the direct out there is no need to have a cabinet connected to the head.

My question is: is this in general or only when the direct out is engaged?

I would like to slave another amp from the effects send, without using a cabinet connect to the origin 50 head.

I wonder if the dummy loads is always on

I have Marshall CODE50 and PEDL-91010 (2-way switch). I have the latest 1.44 firmware update installed, but my pedal does not work properly. For some reason when I press the switch to go down a preset it goes up a preset or just does nothing. Sometimes it works, but that does not happen very often. I've opened the footswitch and the circuit seems too simple to be faulty and by the way my amp acts when I press the down switch it looks like it is the problem with the firmware.

Hi,

I have two Marshall Stanmore Multiroom speakers and I keep having issues with streaming music. I've contacted support multiple times and while they are friendly and try to help as best as they can, I still don't have a solution.

The setup is the following: my two Stanmore Multiroom speakers are in the same room, about 6 meters apart from each other. I have saved a couple of online radio stations and spotify playlists on the devices. The wireless router (a Fritzbox with 2.4GHz and 5GHz enabled) is in the same room, 2 meter from the first Stanmore, 4 meters from the other. 

The problem: When streaming music, half the time it's crackling. By crackling I mean the sound similiar to someone touching the needle of a record player. This is very annoying and not something you want with a speaker you paid €450 for... Now, as both these speakers have this problem, I thought my network was not sufficient. Speedtests (while the crackling is occurring) show I get about 200Mbps down and 30Mbps up. I even bought the Fritzbox to place in the same room to try and solve this problem. 

On the 5GHz network, both speakers only have a signal strength of 25%-45%. On the 2.4GHz network, both speakers get 55%-60%. The crackling occurs on both networks. There is no other wifi network in my surroundings using the same channel, this can be checked on the Fritzbox. This seems to be a very low signal strength while the router is in the same room, with no blocking walls...

The online streams and spotify lists don't have any issues when I listen to them on my phone/laptop, only on the Stanmores.

The last thing support said was to send the speakers to repairs, but I have read the instructions and when they don't find an issue, I need to pay for their work. I would like to make sure I have two faulty speakers before I would return these. Are there any solutions I haven't tried yet? The thing that worries me is that these Stanmore Multirooms are no longer in production... Is this a known problem?

I hope someone can help me with this frustrating issue... Thanks in advance!

I have tried using a Boss DD-3 in the effects loop but I can hear a significant drop in volume and tone when the loop is engaged. If I remove the pedal and just have a patch cable going from the send to return, there is no volume or tone loss when the loop is engaged. If I move the DD-3 to the front of the amp there is also no volume or tone loss. Why can't I use this pedal in the effects loop?

I have an issue with tap tempo on the Code 25 with 1.45 firmware and wondered if anyone else has the same issue.  The manual says you should "press MOD and DEL selection switches together". When I do that the amp does indeed go into tap tempo mode (tap the selector switch to set tempo), but regardless of how quick I press the buttons or if I hold down one and then hit the other it always switches on the MOD module too. The other double combination switches (tuner and bluetooth) dont do this and work as expected and only switch on those functions without switching on or off any other modules.

I need to change the order of the presets as needed, but the Gateway application does not allow changing the position of each preset in memory. 
I don't want to overwrite presets by saving to other stots, I just want to change the order of each preset.
Is there another way to perform this operation?
MyGateway does not synchronize with the hardware, it only sends it to the hardware.
My CODE presets do not appear on MyGateway.

My Stanmore 2 speaker keeps turning off & back on again (sound plays and indicator lights go on & off) when playing vinyl through the RCA or AUX. Very annoying. No problem when playing on Bluetooth through my iPhone. Any ideas please?

At some point Marshall will give up on Code and move on to something else (and by past experience it may not be that far away). I would have liked some way to backup and restore patches to the amp once there is no more Gateway or online storage (this happened to Fender Fuse)
I cant believe that after 5 years Marshall dont have even a basic PC application to perform the simple task of saving and loading patches. Even the most basic of multi FX have that functionality these days.

Its clearly hoping for too much to get an editor, you can do that on the app, or even on the amp itself fairly easily anyway.  I'm more worried about managing patches if Marshall shut down the Code servers. Without a way to backup and restore what happens if you have to reset your amp. You have lost everything. After spending a lot of time getting all our sounds just right, I for one would probably give up at that point.

I'm not asking for much, save a patch from the amp to a file, load a patch back from a file to the amp!

I recently purchased a Marshall Code 25. Today I decided to update the firmware.  Originally it had version 1.45 on it, but after the update it now has version 1.44. I can't find version 1.45 on the Marshall website. How can I install the latest firmware, which is 1.45?

Hi. I'm having a problem with my DSL5CR. When plugged direct into the amp and switched to the Classic gain channel it works perfectly. However, when switched to the Ultra gain channel, the guitar is very faint and what can be heard is a weak-fuzzy sound. When I first noticed the problem, I thought it was a case of the tubes needing to warm up, as after 30 seconds the level would gradually increase, unfortunately the problem has got worse. Could it be the pre-amp tubes at fault? 

Thanks,
Steve

It's been ovem a year and a half since there's been a firmware update. I was hoping they could take out some of the bass response that seems to be prevalent on my Code 50 in the next firmware update.  Does anybodt know of any plans to do any updates?

Hi everybody, no question but just a statement (just to show how satisfied I am with this amp, but also maybe to encourage other users): I LOVE THE CODE50!

I own two Code50's, one for rehearsels and one for gigs - so one is the clone of the other. Today I had a feeling I should "finetune" some of my already established presets due to a new guitar I recently bought. And what can I say? Everything worked as expected: The amp (sw-version 1.44) connected with the phone (iPhone XR, iOS 14.4, Gateway version 1.5), I was able to change presets via footswitch or phone, downloaded presets and edited them - as always absolutely no problems or issues.

Thanks to Marshall for an absolutely satisfying and reliable, easy to transport and always great sounding product! 'nuff said!

I know this forum has this question asked a number of times, and the reply is always to delete the app and re-install.  I've done this multiple times, and it never solves the problem.  In fact, I had this app successfully installed on my iPad a few years ago, and hadn't used it latey.  When I use it now, I get the same message.  

Context3d not available! Possible reasons: wrong renderMode or missing device support

I googled this message and found out that it's related to Flash.  Apple has discontinued all support of Flash on iOS devices.  So my educated guess is that you need to re-vamp this application to not use any Flash programming.  No ammount of deleting and reinstalling the app will ever solve this problem.  You need to update the app.

I would like marshall to give us a program for the official PC in the style of Code Editor, since it has abandoned its development and support several years ago, so it has many bugs, so it would be a very good detail with all CODE users who Marshall made his own software for Windows 10 PCs and MacOS with which it was easier to manage patches, rename them, organize them, import them, export them etc. I hope they give us that.
