Marshall-Softube (MST) Modelling Technology
In order to do their tones justice, Marshall teamed up with audio software pioneers Softube and Marshall-Softube (MST) modelling was born. Within the CODE50, you have access to a huge catalogue of preamps that have helped shaped the musical landscape, including: JTM45 2245; 1962 Bluesbreaker; 1959SLP Plexi; JCM800 2203; JCM2555 Silver Jubilee; JCM2000 DSL100; JVM410H and many more.

As well as a wide range of preamp models, Marshall have included a selection of power amp voicings too: EL34; 5881; EL84 and 6L6. As if that wasn't enough, you can even choose between their most popular speaker cabinet models: 1960; 1960V; 1960AX; 1960HW; 1936; 1936V; 1912 and 1974X. As you can see, whatever style of music you play, you have a range of tonal options available to you. Accessing the tonal arsenal available to you couldn't be easier, simply plug in, adjust the preset button to one of your choosing, and you're good to go. Every single preset can be edited, which enables you to create your dream library of tones to be recalled as and when you please.

Marshall Gateway App and Connectivity
Across the top panel of the amp cabinet, you'll find a selection of knobs that give you direct access over your tone. However, in addition to the physical controls, the CODE50 is also Marshall Gateway compatible. Using your iOS or Android device you can: connect and control your amplifier's settings; connect with other CODE users; and stream audio via Bluetooth.
The Bass, Middle, Treble, Gain and Volume settings can be attenuated, as well as activating and deactivating CODE's Section Switches. Each one of the 100 editable presets can be edited within the app, and stored directly to the amp's memory. You can even share your presets with other CODE users, allowing you to collaborate with fellow guitarists around the globe.
Connect to the CODE50 via USB to use the amp as an interface with your DAW of choice for seamless recording opportunities.
Solid Marshall Construction
As we’ve come to expect, the enclosure is solidly built, whilst all the controls operate smoothly. Opting for a minimal look, the front panel is all black with the instantly recognisable “Marshall” logo set against it. A sturdy handle makes this lightweight (6kg) beauty very easy to transport.
