Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [359, 2227, 3161, 907, 2501, 1649] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [407, 739, 1817, 2251, 2417, 3173]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 359 is 3281
