Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 325 can be rotated to make 1 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 1105
Scale 1105: Messiaen truncated mode 6 inverse, Ian Ring Music TheoryMessiaen truncated mode 6 inverse

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [325, 1105] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1495, 1885, 2795, 3445]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 325 is 1105
