Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2795 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3445 | Messiaen mode 6 inverse | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1885 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 1495 | Messiaen mode 6 | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 1495

Scale 1495 | Messiaen mode 6 |

The octatonic modal family [2795, 3445, 1885, 1495] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [325, 1105]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2795 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
