Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The nonatonic modal family [1503, 2799, 3447, 3771, 3933, 2007, 3051, 3573, 1917] is the negative of the tritonic modal family [69, 321, 1041]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1503 is 3957
