    Hi Ian,
    Where you list the synthesizer and FX features and it says "and more", is there a complete list somewhere? I would like to work through all the different effects and see what they do individually.

    Hey Ironaidan, I guess just the manual is the best source for that? This isn't meant to be an exhaustive list above.

    Does anyone have the dimensions of the power inlet? Is it a 2.1mm diameter, 2.5mm, etc?

    I have a power cord that kind of fits, but it's very loose and I don't think I'd want to rely on that.

    In Russia, do not sell the battery LG D1 18650 3000mAh 3.7V.
    Found with such characteristics: Electro-chemical system: Lithium-Ion Size: 18650 Capacity: 3400 mAh Voltage: 3.6 V.
    Tell me, is this battery suitable and can I operate Deluge without a battery?

    P.S. Where can I see the photo of the lower side of the Deluge, to see how to insert the battery?

    If it's a flat top, that battery will work. But as far as I know, the battery is included with the Deluge now :)

    And it can run without a battery as well, with a 9-12v center negative power supply
