2nd mode:
Scale 1235
Scale 1235: Messiaen truncated mode 2, Ian Ring Music TheoryMessiaen truncated mode 2
3rd mode:
Scale 2665
Scale 2665, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

The prime form of this scale is Scale 715

Scale 715Scale 715: Messiaen truncated mode 2, Ian Ring Music TheoryMessiaen truncated mode 2

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [845, 1235, 2665] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [715, 1625, 2405]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 845 is 1625
