Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 685 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1195 | Raga Gandharavam | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 2645 | Raga Mruganandana | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1685 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 1445 | Raga Navamanohari | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1385 |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The hexatonic modal family [685, 1195, 2645, 1685, 1445, 1385] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [685, 1195, 1385, 1445, 1685, 2645]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 685 is 1705

Scale 1705 | Raga Manohari |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 685 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1705

Scale 1705 | Raga Manohari |

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.
