The heptatonic modal family [2461, 1639, 2867, 3481, 947, 2521, 827] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [307, 787, 817, 2201, 2441]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2461 is 1843

Scale 1843Scale 1843, Ian Ring Music Theory


Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2461 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1843
