Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2937 can be rotated to make 7 other scales.

The prime form of this scale is Scale 879

Scale 879 |

The octatonic modal family [2937, 879, 2487, 3291, 3693, 1947, 3021, 1779] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [147, 609, 777, 2121]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2937 is 987

Scale 987 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2937 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 987

Scale 987 |

These are other scales that are similar to this one, created by adding a tone, removing a tone, or moving one note up or down a semitone.
