Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 693 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1197 | Minor Hexatonic | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1323 | Ritsu | ||||

4th mode: Scale 2709 | Raga Kumud | ||||

5th mode: Scale 1701 | Dominant Seventh | ||||

6th mode: Scale 1449 | Raga Gopikavasantam |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The hexatonic modal family [693, 1197, 1323, 2709, 1701, 1449] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [693, 1197, 1323, 1449, 1701, 2709]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 693 is 1449

Scale 1449 | Raga Gopikavasantam |
