Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [439, 2267, 3181, 1819, 2957, 1763, 2929] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [295, 625, 905, 2195, 3145]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 439 is 3505
