Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1449 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 693 | Arezzo Major Diatonic Hexachord | This is the prime mode | |||

3rd mode: Scale 1197 | Minor Hexatonic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1323 | Ritsu | ||||

5th mode: Scale 2709 | Raga Kumud | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1701 | Dominant Seventh |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 693

Scale 693 | Arezzo Major Diatonic Hexachord |

The hexatonic modal family [1449, 693, 1197, 1323, 2709, 1701] (Forte: 6-32) is the complement of the hexatonic modal family [693, 1197, 1323, 1449, 1701, 2709] (Forte: 6-32)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1449 is 693
