Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

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

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 407 is 3377
