Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 355 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2225 | Ionian Pentatonic | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 395 | Balinese | ||||

4th mode: Scale 2245 | Raga Vaijayanti | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1585 | Raga Khamaji Durga |

This is the prime form of this scale.

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

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

Scale 2257 | Lydian Pentatonic |

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

Scale 2257 | Lydian Pentatonic |
