Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1621 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1429 | |||||

3rd mode: Scale 1381 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 1369 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 683 | This is the prime mode | ||||

6th mode: Scale 2389 | Eskimo Hexatonic 2 |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 683

Scale 683 |

The hexatonic modal family [1621, 1429, 1381, 1369, 683, 2389] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [683, 1369, 1381, 1429, 1621, 2389]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1621 is 1357

Scale 1357 | Takemitsu Tree Line mode 2 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 1621 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1357

Scale 1357 | Takemitsu Tree Line mode 2 |

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.
