Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2441 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 817 | |||||

3rd mode: Scale 307 | Raga Megharanjani | This is the prime mode | |||

4th mode: Scale 2201 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 787 |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 307

Scale 307 | Raga Megharanjani |

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

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2441 is 563

Scale 563 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2441 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 563

Scale 563 |
