Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. This scale has no modes, becaue any rotation of this scale will produce another copy of itself.

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The tritonic modal family [273] is the negative of the nonatonic modal family [1911, 3003, 3549]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 273 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
