Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2389 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1621 | Prometheus (Scriabin) | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1429 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 1381 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 1369 | |||||

6th mode: Scale 683 | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 683

Scale 683 |

The hexatonic modal family [2389, 1621, 1429, 1381, 1369, 683] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [683, 1369, 1381, 1429, 1621, 2389]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2389 is 1363

Scale 1363 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2389 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1363

Scale 1363 |
