I've been reading various threads here, but I still don't fully understand the Deluge parameters/options here.
(just ordered my Deluge - backordered, so it may be a while)

Can you create user defined scales, (not microtonal, just within the standard 12 tone, equal tempered base), using lights to clarify the notes you've selected? and store different ones for quick recall, etc.?

(I used this feature a lot with my Linnstrument, and hope that a similar option exists, or may be in the works...)

    u can create user scales, kind of. linnstrument or launchpad are much more flexible and easier to use for this.
    support for scales other than diatonic or chromatic http://forums.synthstrom.com/discussion/284/true-custom-scales#latest

    You can definitely make user scales. But store for recall is not an option yet. To make a user scale first select root note. Then get out of scale mode. Then enter the keys you want in the grid. Then press scale mode again then it will display either the scale it is in or it will say other. There are already about 100 scales preset internal also

    Just to be really annoying I wanted to say there aren't "hundreds of scales", unfortunately, because music theory. An A minor scale being "the same scale" as a C major. C major is D dorian, etc etc.
    It would be VERY cool to have more scales and some simple scale modes.
    These would all be great:
    Whole-half, Whole Tone, Minor Pentatonic, Minor Blues (minor P with M6 and add b5), Major P, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, Super Locrian, Phrygian Dominant (~Hijaz - Phyrigian with M3), Bhairav, "Hungarian Minor", Minor Gypsy (Dorian with b5), Hirojoshi, In-Sen, Iwato, Kumoi, Pelog, ETC :)
