Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 309 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 1101

5th mode:
Scale 849
Scale 849, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [309, 1101, 1299, 2697, 849] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [699, 1497, 1623, 1893, 2397, 2859, 3477]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 309 is 1425
