Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 517 can be rotated to make 2 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1153 | |||||

3rd mode: Scale 41 | Vietnamese tritonic |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 37

Scale 37 |

The tritonic modal family [517, 1153, 41] is the negative of the nonatonic modal family [1471, 1789, 2027, 2783, 3061, 3439, 3767, 3931, 4013]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 517 is 1033

Scale 1033 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 517 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1033

Scale 1033 |
