Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 297 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 549 | Raga Bhavani | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1161 | Bi Yu | ||||

4th mode: Scale 657 |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The tetratonic modal family [297, 549, 1161, 657] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1467, 1719, 1773, 1899, 2781, 2907, 2997, 3501]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 297 is 657

Scale 657 |
