Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2201 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [2201, 787, 2441, 817, 307] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [823, 883, 1843, 2459, 2489, 2969, 3277]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2201 is 803
