3rd mode:
Scale 395
Scale 395: Balinese, Ian Ring Music TheoryBalinese
4th mode:

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [355, 2225, 395, 2245, 1585] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [743, 919, 1849, 2419, 2507, 3257, 3301]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 355 is 2257

Enantiomorph

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 355 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2257
