Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [479, 2287, 3191, 3643, 3869, 1991, 3043, 3569] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [71, 449, 2083, 3089]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 479 is 3953
