Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [587, 2341, 1609, 713, 601] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [731, 1627, 1739, 1753, 2413, 2861, 2917]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 587 is 2633
