Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1185 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 165 | Genus Primum | This is the prime mode | |||

3rd mode: Scale 1065 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 645 |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 165

Scale 165 | Genus Primum |

The tetratonic modal family [1185, 165, 1065, 645] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1455, 1515, 1725, 1965, 2775, 2805, 3435, 3765]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1185 is 165

Scale 165 | Genus Primum |
