Negative

The heptatonic modal family [1461, 1389, 1371, 2733, 1707, 2901, 1749] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [597, 681, 1173, 1317, 1353]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1461 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
