Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [311, 2203, 3149, 1811, 2953, 881] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [311, 881, 1811, 2203, 2953, 3149]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 311 is 3473
