Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [191, 2143, 3119, 3607, 3851, 3973, 2017] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [47, 1921, 2071, 3083, 3589]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 191 is 4001
