Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 593 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 293 | Raga Haripriya | This is the prime mode | |||

3rd mode: Scale 1097 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 649 |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 293

Scale 293 | Raga Haripriya |

The tetratonic modal family [593, 293, 1097, 649] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1463, 1757, 1771, 1883, 2779, 2933, 2989, 3437]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 593 is 329

Scale 329 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 593 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 329

Scale 329 |

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.
