Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [447, 2271, 3183, 3639, 3867, 3981, 2019, 3057] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [39, 897, 2067, 3081]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 447 is 4017
