Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 293 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 1097
Scale 1097: Aeraphic, Ian Ring Music TheoryAeraphic
3rd mode:
Scale 649
Scale 649: Byptic, Ian Ring Music TheoryByptic
4th mode:
Scale 593
Scale 593: Saric, Ian Ring Music TheorySaric


This is the prime form of this scale.


The tetratonic modal family [293, 1097, 649, 593] (Forte: 4-27) is the complement of the octatonic modal family [1463, 1757, 1771, 1883, 2779, 2933, 2989, 3437] (Forte: 8-27)


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 293 is 1169
