Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [431, 2263, 3179, 3637, 1933, 1507, 2801] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [167, 901, 1249, 2131, 3113]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 431 is 3761
