Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 3081 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 897

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [3081, 897, 39, 2067] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [447, 2019, 2271, 3057, 3183, 3639, 3867, 3981]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 3081 is 519
