Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 947 can be rotated to make 6 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

The prime form of this scale is Scale 823

Scale 823 |

The heptatonic modal family [947, 2521, 827, 2461, 1639, 2867, 3481] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [307, 787, 817, 2201, 2441]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 947 is 2489

Scale 2489 | Mela Gangeyabhusani |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 947 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2489
