Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2211 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

The prime form of this scale is Scale 327

Scale 327 |

The pentatonic modal family [2211, 3153, 453, 1137, 327] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [471, 1479, 1821, 2283, 2787, 3189, 3441]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2211 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
