Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 681 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 597 | Kung | This is the prime mode | |||

3rd mode: Scale 1173 | Dominant Pentatonic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1317 | Chaio | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1353 | Raga Harikauns |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 597

Scale 597 | Kung |

The pentatonic modal family [681, 597, 1173, 1317, 1353] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [1371, 1389, 1461, 1707, 1749, 2733, 2901]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 681 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
