Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 307 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2201
Scale 2201, Ian Ring Music Theory
3rd mode:
Scale 787
Scale 787, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 2441
Scale 2441, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 817
Scale 817, Ian Ring Music Theory


This is the prime form of this scale.


The pentatonic modal family [307, 2201, 787, 2441, 817] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [823, 883, 1843, 2459, 2489, 2969, 3277]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 307 is 2449

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 307 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2449
