Scale 315Scale 315, Ian Ring Music Theory

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [2961, 441, 567, 2331, 3213, 1827] 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 2961 is 315
