Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 411 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2253
Scale 2253: Raga Amarasenapriya, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Amarasenapriya
3rd mode:
Scale 1587
Scale 1587: Raga Rudra Pancama, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Rudra Pancama
4th mode:
Scale 2841
Scale 2841, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 867
Scale 867, Ian Ring Music Theory
6th mode:
Scale 2481
Scale 2481: Raga Paraju, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Paraju


This is the prime form of this scale.


The hexatonic modal family [411, 2253, 1587, 2841, 867, 2481] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [615, 825, 915, 2355, 2505, 3225]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 411 is 2865

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 411 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2865
