Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [331, 2213, 1577, 709, 1201] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [727, 1483, 1721, 1837, 2411, 2789, 3253]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 331 is 2641
