Modes

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 71 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2083
Scale 2083, Ian Ring Music Theory
3rd mode:
Scale 3089
Scale 3089, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 449
Scale 449, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [71, 2083, 3089, 449] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [479, 1991, 2287, 3043, 3191, 3569, 3643, 3869]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 71 is 3137

Enantiomorph

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 71 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 3137
