Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2605 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1675 | Raga Salagavarali | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 2885 | Byrimic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1745 | Raga Vutari | ||||

5th mode: Scale 365 | Marimic | This is the prime mode | |||

6th mode: Scale 1115 | Superlocrian Hexamirror |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 365

Scale 365 | Marimic |

The hexatonic modal family [2605, 1675, 2885, 1745, 365, 1115] (Forte: 6-Z23) is the complement of the hexatonic modal family [605, 745, 1175, 1865, 2635, 3365] (Forte: 6-Z45)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2605 is 1675
