Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2927 can be rotated to make 8 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3511 | Epolygic | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 3803 | Epidygic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 3949 | Koptygic | ||||

5th mode: Scale 2011 | Raphygic | ||||

6th mode: Scale 3053 | Zycrygic | ||||

7th mode: Scale 1787 | Mycrygic | ||||

8th mode: Scale 2941 | Laptygic | ||||

9th mode: Scale 1759 | Pylygic | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 1759

Scale 1759 | Pylygic |

The nonatonic modal family [2927, 3511, 3803, 3949, 2011, 3053, 1787, 2941, 1759] (Forte: 9-10) is the complement of the tritonic modal family [73, 521, 577] (Forte: 3-10)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2927 is 3803
