Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 275 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2185
Scale 2185, Ian Ring Music Theory
3rd mode:
Scale 785
Scale 785, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 305
Scale 305, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [275, 2185, 785, 305] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [887, 1847, 1907, 2491, 2971, 3001, 3293, 3533]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 275 is 2321

Enantiomorph

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 275 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2321
