User Defined Scales Issue


I am having trouble defining a scale. I am pretty sure I am performing the operation correctly as described in the manual, but the deluge refuses to accept the notes I set. It keeps guessing wrong by adding notes I did not select. I don't want it to guess, when I'm explicitly programming the scale.

Example: try to program a blues scale

Am I missing a step or is this a bug?

    You can alter notes manually on the audition pads by holding one, then holding and turning the select knob - you can change them up or down a semi-tone ;)

    Using the scale alter function I am still unable to produce a scale with fewer than seven notes.

    Using the define scale function, depending on the root, the deluge will add a note or two when programming a blues scale. There shouldn't be any guessing by the software if I'm defining the root and the scale.

    Thanks. I searched earlier, but didn't find it. Tried again after your comment and there it was. Upvoted and hoping.

    Scales on the Deluge will usually contain seven different notes (eight if you count the octave - the same as most Western scales). However, sometimes there will be more notes - for instance, if both a major 3rd and a minor 3rd are present when entering scale mode, both will be added to the scale.

    manual page

    What does the request ask for exactly Gibbous? I dont get a scale with less than 7 notes. All “other” scales seem to consist of 8 (9 too?) notes. The manual just says “usually 7 notes” and “sometimes more”.
    I also like feature suggestion, would also allow to set up a blues scale
