Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 427 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2261 | Raga Caturangini | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1589 | Raga Rageshri | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1421 | Raga Trimurti | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1379 | Kycrimic | ||||

6th mode: Scale 2737 | Raga Hari Nata |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The hexatonic modal family [427, 2261, 1589, 1421, 1379, 2737] (Forte: 6-Z26) is the complement of the hexatonic modal family [679, 917, 1253, 1337, 2387, 3241] (Forte: 6-Z48)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 427 is 2737
