Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [383, 2239, 3167, 3631, 3863, 3979, 4037, 2033] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [23, 1793, 2059, 3077]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 383 is 4049
