The hexatonic modal family [1841, 371, 2233, 791, 2443, 3269] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [371, 791, 1841, 2233, 2443, 3269]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1841 is 413

Scale 413Scale 413, Ian Ring Music Theory


Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 1841 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 413
