Prime

The prime form of this scale is Scale 315

Scale 315Scale 315, Ian Ring Music Theory

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [2331, 3213, 1827, 2961, 441, 567] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [315, 945, 1575, 2205, 2835, 3465]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2331 is 2835
