The hexatonic modal family [2439, 3267, 3681, 243, 2169, 783] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [207, 963, 2151, 2529, 3123, 3609]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2439 is 3123

Scale 3123Scale 3123, Ian Ring Music Theory


Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2439 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 3123
