7th mode: Scale 1493 | Lydian Minor |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 1367

Scale 1367 | Leading Whole-Tone inverse |

The heptatonic modal family [1397, 1373, 1367, 2731, 3413, 1877, 1493] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [341, 1109, 1301, 1349, 1361]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1397 is 1493

Scale 1493 | Lydian Minor |
