Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 561 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 291 | Raga Lavangi | This is the prime mode | |||

3rd mode: Scale 2193 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 393 |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 291

Scale 291 | Raga Lavangi |

The tetratonic modal family [561, 291, 2193, 393] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [951, 1767, 1851, 2523, 2931, 2973, 3309, 3513]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 561 is 393

Scale 393 |
