Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2475 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3285 | Mela Citrambari | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1845 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 1485 | Minor Romani | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1395 | Asian (a) | ||||

6th mode: Scale 2745 | Mela Sulini | ||||

7th mode: Scale 855 | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 855

Scale 855 |

The heptatonic modal family [2475, 3285, 1845, 1485, 1395, 2745, 855] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [339, 789, 1221, 1329, 2217]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2475 is 2739

Scale 2739 | Mela Suryakanta |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2475 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2739
