Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1707 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2901 | Lydian Augmented | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1749 | Acoustic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1461 | Major-Minor | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1389 | Minor Locrian | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1371 | Superlocrian | This is the prime mode | |||

7th mode: Scale 2733 | Melodic Minor Ascending |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 1371

Scale 1371 | Superlocrian |

The heptatonic modal family [1707, 2901, 1749, 1461, 1389, 1371, 2733] (Forte: 7-34) is the complement of the pentatonic modal family [597, 681, 1173, 1317, 1353] (Forte: 5-34)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1707 is 2733

Scale 2733 | Melodic Minor Ascending |
