    Hopefully, those who have received their Code amplifiers have dialed in some good tones for different songs, parts or artists. While we wait for Marshall to start the community up, we can share and help each other, albeit the long way.

    I'll do my best to kick it off with what I've worked out so far. If they aren't any good, tweaks and constructive criticism are welcomed.

    **** fellow forum members have gone to great lengths to compile the factory presets as well as those contributed here. Here are links to their work in Excel and Converted to PDF.

    Welcome to the forum!

    The launch of CODE has seemed like a fustercluck from the consumer vantage point so it's no surprise that the online community is as well. If all follows suit, expect it about two months after it should be ready, have a bunch of bugs that will need to be worked out, then expect to be very happy with it.

    I agree with forum member "Slugzz-sop": what a great idea for a thread!

    I don't own any Code amps, but I'm sure there are lots of people who will/do, so this thread might be very helpful even after the official Code community sharing site is up. I might even use some of the effects settings on my own system to see how it sounds-the results might be very good and give me new ideas to work on.

    So thanks, "mazzefr" for the great idea.

    Thanks for the welcome!
    I'll keep my eyes peeled and eye on this thread then. It is an odd way of launching such a cool product. It's what brought me back to having a Marshall after a long time away. Haven't ditched my others - this is just a nice add on. Thanks for the settings . Gonna put these to good use

    take in mind, these patches were set using full range speakers as i recorded them using the line out
    they probably need some additional tweaking when using the stock speakers from the code amplifiers, especially the presence and resonance settings
    i also advise to just go crazy and change to a different amp, poweramp and/or cabinet, to discover more tones :)


    yup, slash tone from a little box:
    preFX: DIS, drive: 0.1, tone :10, level 6.5
    amp: plexi, gate: 2.5, gain and EQ at taste
    rev: stadium (i'll let you tweak the parameters at own wish)
    power: classic 100W presence: 6 resonance: 6
    cabinet: 1960V (of course)


    brown sound:
    preFX: DIS, drive: 0.1, tone :10, level 5.0
    amp: plexi, gate: 2.5, gain and EQ at taste
    rev: hall (i'll let you tweak the parameters at own wish)
    power: british class A, presence: 8, resonance: 10
    cabinet: 1960X

    I'm looking for good AC/DC settings and ZZ-Top settings if anyone already found some.

    I just bought a Code 50. What to you mean by the "line out"???? I assume you mean the USB, but to what and how? Also, those recordings sound AMAZING!

    I'm using the HEADPHONE OUT to my computer and tried this - mind you I don't have the album handy - and using the Gateway app (switched to the phone presets so I can save it without overwriting the amp's presets)

    1) went to the menu tab, tunings, and put the guitar into C# Standard tuning...now if i only had an SG...

    2) 00 EL34 Heaven
    OD Silver Jubilee
    Classic Marshall 100w 1960V
    Gain > 5.0 Bass > 0.0
    Vol > 10.0 Mid > 10.0
    Thre > 2.4 Treb > 10.0

    3) Amp tab
    Pre-Amp > OD Silver Jubilee
    Pow-Amp > Classic Marshall 100w
    Presence > 10.0 Resonance > 4.3
    Cabinet > 1960V

    4) FX all off except
    Reverb > Room
    Decay > 3.3
    Pre > 2.4
    Tone > 7
    Level > 5.2

    Hopefully thats a start. load up the album and tweak it out while playing along! if you dial it in more or come up with something else entirely then report back! pretty groovy for that into the void or children of the grave riffs lol....
    I to am looking for that AC/DC tone, it should be easy but i cant seem to dial it in...:confused:

    JTM45 or plexi, through the 1960X or 1960HW should get you there
    set gain so that the amp stays clean at soft picking but distorts when you dig in... use a little compression up front to get to angus territory, leave it off for malcolm stuff
    AC/DC's powerful sound comes from 2 guitars... many people also dial in too much gain btw... keep it low ;)

    thanks Big Dooley, I'll give it a shot with those amps. I know when I tried before it sounded crappy, but I'll give it another go!

    I was thinking about this thread earlier, so I tried to dial in what I thought was a decent / passable Angus Young-like tone, and I thought my best results were w/the JCM800 set w/the gain quite low, and using the volume knob on my guitar for rhythm / leads.

    Hey fellas. I've been trying to reach a sound SIMILAR to Mr Hendrix, I know it's basically impossible to get it identical and I wouldn't want that anyways. But the closest I've come is with a 100W Classic Marshall through a 1936V cab and with the JCM800 pre-amp. Added on some Auto-Wah and a tiny bit of Reverb. But I would still need to get some univibe like tone together with some fuzz. Anyone got something like this going?
