Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1601 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 89

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [1601, 89, 523, 2309] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [763, 1631, 2009, 2429, 2863, 3479, 3787, 3941]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1601 is 77
