Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. This scale has no modes, becaue any rotation of this scale will produce another copy of itself.


The tetratonic modal family [585, 585, 585, 585] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1755, 1755, 1755, 1755, 2925, 2925, 2925, 2925]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 585 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
