Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 403 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2249
Scale 2249: Raga Multani, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Multani
3rd mode:
Scale 793
Scale 793, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 611
Scale 611, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 2353
Scale 2353: Raga Girija, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Girija


This is the prime form of this scale.


The pentatonic modal family [403, 2249, 793, 611, 2353] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [871, 923, 1651, 2483, 2509, 2873, 3289]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 403 is 2353
