Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2213 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1577 | Raga Chandrakauns (Kafi) | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 709 | Raga Shri Kalyan | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1201 | Mixolydian Pentatonic | ||||

5th mode: Scale 331 | Raga Chhaya Todi | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 331

Scale 331 | Raga Chhaya Todi |

The pentatonic modal family [2213, 1577, 709, 1201, 331] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [727, 1483, 1721, 1837, 2411, 2789, 3253]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2213 is 1187

Scale 1187 | Kokin-joshi |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2213 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1187

Scale 1187 | Kokin-joshi |
