2nd mode:
Scale 715
Scale 715: Messiaen truncated mode 2, Ian Ring Music TheoryMessiaen truncated mode 2This is the prime mode
3rd mode:
Scale 2405
Scale 2405, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

The prime form of this scale is Scale 715

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [1625, 715, 2405] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [715, 1625, 2405]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1625 is 845
