Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 333 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [333, 1107, 2601, 837, 1233] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [747, 1431, 1629, 1881, 2421, 2763, 3429]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 333 is 1617
