Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1421 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1379 | |||||

3rd mode: Scale 2737 | Raga Hari Nata | ||||

4th mode: Scale 427 | Raga Suddha Simantini | This is the prime mode | |||

5th mode: Scale 2261 | Raga Caturangini | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1589 | Raga Rageshri |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 427

Scale 427 | Raga Suddha Simantini |

The hexatonic modal family [1421, 1379, 2737, 427, 2261, 1589] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [679, 917, 1253, 1337, 2387, 3241]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1421 is 1589
