Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2509 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1651 | Asian | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 2873 | Ionian Augmented Sharp 2 | ||||

4th mode: Scale 871 | Locrian Double-flat 3 Double-flat 7 | This is the prime mode | |||

5th mode: Scale 2483 | Double Harmonic | ||||

6th mode: Scale 3289 | Lydian Sharp 2 Sharp 6 | ||||

7th mode: Scale 923 | Ultraphrygian |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 871

Scale 871 | Locrian Double-flat 3 Double-flat 7 |

The heptatonic modal family [2509, 1651, 2873, 871, 2483, 3289, 923] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [403, 611, 793, 2249, 2353]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2509 is 1651

Scale 1651 | Asian |
