Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [1391, 2743, 3419, 3757, 1963, 3029, 1781, 1469] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [149, 673, 1061, 1289]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1391 is 3797
