Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2739 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3417 | Golian | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 939 | Mela Senavati | ||||

4th mode: Scale 2517 | Harmonic Lydian | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1653 | Minor Romani Inverse | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1437 | Sabach ascending | ||||

7th mode: Scale 1383 | Pynian |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 855

Scale 855 | Porian |

The heptatonic modal family [2739, 3417, 939, 2517, 1653, 1437, 1383] (Forte: 7-30) is the complement of the pentatonic modal family [339, 789, 1221, 1329, 2217] (Forte: 5-30)

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

Scale 2475 | Neapolitan Minor |

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