Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 805 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 1225
Scale 1225: Raga Samudhra Priya, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Samudhra Priya
3rd mode:
Scale 665
Scale 665: Raga Mohanangi, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Mohanangi
4th mode:
Scale 595
Scale 595, Ian Ring Music TheoryThis is the prime mode
5th mode:
Scale 2345
Scale 2345: Raga Chandrakauns, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Chandrakauns


The prime form of this scale is Scale 595

The pentatonic modal family [805, 1225, 665, 595, 2345] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [859, 1459, 1643, 1741, 2477, 2777, 2869]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 805 is 1177
