Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 723 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2409

3rd mode:
Scale 813
Scale 813, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 1227

5th mode:
Scale 2661
Scale 2661, Ian Ring Music Theory
6th mode:
Scale 1689
Scale 1689, Ian Ring Music Theory


This is the prime form of this scale.


The hexatonic modal family [723, 2409, 813, 1227, 2661, 1689] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [717, 843, 1203, 1641, 2469, 2649]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 723 is 2409
