Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 549 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

The prime form of this scale is Scale 297

Scale 297 | Mynic |

The tetratonic modal family [549, 1161, 657, 297] (Forte: 4-26) is the complement of the octatonic modal family [1467, 1719, 1773, 1899, 2781, 2907, 2997, 3501] (Forte: 8-26)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 549 is 1161
