I am interested in modes (western) ie ragas (Indian) and in alternate
Im not sure what you mean by scale in this context.

I recently had a discussion with the musescore folks about scale ie key
Evidently in musescore one can enter non-standard (by western standards)
key signatures like only an A-flat (rather than the usual B-flat) or even
an F-# and a B-flat etc.
But it does not 'understand'  these key signatures when playback-ing.
ie with standard western signatures it plays the correct notes but with
these 'home-made' signatures it just plays everything natural.

Dunno if all this has anything to do with anything you are asking.
