Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1459 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2777 | Aeolian Harmonic | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 859 | Ultralocrian | This is the prime mode | |||

4th mode: Scale 2477 | Harmonic Minor | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1643 | Locrian natural 6 | ||||

6th mode: Scale 2869 | Ionian Augmented | ||||

7th mode: Scale 1741 | Altered Dorian |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 859

Scale 859 | Ultralocrian |

The heptatonic modal family [1459, 2777, 859, 2477, 1643, 2869, 1741] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [595, 665, 805, 1225, 2345]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1459 is 2485

Scale 2485 | Harmonic Major |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 1459 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2485

Scale 2485 | Harmonic Major |

These are other scales that are similar to this one, created by adding a tone, removing a tone, or moving one note up or down a semitone.
