    It always goes like that. Over and over.

    I heard some more vids. There are some I like. The Plexi preset was too thin over my speakers. Presets always have things off about them. That's why there's editing.

    Any ways I'm still listening to it.:yesway:

    If an amp has channels and/or other features I want to switch at a gig, I expect that to be MIDI controlled. In fact I want it to be a full featured MIDI implementation including control messages so I can turn on/off individual features and options as needed (not just presets). This is one big reason I prefer the Satriani JVM over the standard JVM.

    That's what this person is asking for :wave: Again, clearly this amp is not targeted at me. The Satriani JVM actually is pretty damn close to what I'm asking for I just wish it was lower output and lighter weight.

    For me I would want two channels so I could run different models in left and right with different settings. Is there a way I could buy two and control them with a single pedal to get this ? Also, September is a long time away to wait. bummer

    No t's not targeted to a pro. But its probably just they're first step into the real future of new guitarists: the online preset swapping community. (the "give me it now, and for free" community)

    Yep...spot on. Imagine being able to connect the CODE up to your JMD1 via the FX return and utilise all the CODE presets via the EL34 power amp of the JMD1. If nothing else Marshall should do a pedal version that does exactly this.
    The product looks very good as a stand alone piece of gear. However it seems that, as usual, Marshall have missed some of the detail that could have made it a whole lot more appealing. If there is no pre-amp out, midi or loop that is just dumb.....even a two bob Casio keyboard has a line out and midi.....would the headphone socket work for this??? :hmm:

    According to insiders, you can.

    From the headphone out to FX return.

    Looks like I'll be taking a JMD50 head to the store with me to try that out....if it works, then the CODE will be coming home with me :yesway:

    ive said that to, but noooo it's not possible because of impedance noise issues blahdiblah, without ever seeing a schematic or even tried it for that matter...

    i've done it with various other equipment and it works just fine, indeed

    What kind of cable would you use for that? It actually sounds intriguing.:hmm:

    I wonder if this means a 70/80 like the DSL40C.

    If you do, please post your results. I'm thinking of doing this exact same thing with my JMD.

    Had a chance to go through the video, mostly. I really like it! I see the foot controller on their website. Wonder the ease of changing sounds, etc. Any pics of the footswitch? If it's this good in person and that reasonably priced, I may ditch the 40C for this little bugger!

    At this price point, it is simple for me:

    Marshall is planting seeds in young/amateur/starting players that they might loose to other brands. Sooner or later the target will decide which model in the Code he or she likes most and buy the real deal, the expensive Marshall he or she cannot aford yet.
