Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 455 can be rotated to make 2 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2275 | Messiaen Mode 5 | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 3185 | Messiaen mode 5 inverse |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The hexatonic modal family [455, 2275, 3185] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [455, 2275, 3185]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 455 is 3185

Scale 3185 | Messiaen mode 5 inverse |

These are other scales that are similar to this one, created by adding a tone, removing a tone, or moving one note up or down a semitone.
