Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [603, 2349, 1611, 2853, 1737, 729] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [603, 729, 1611, 1737, 2349, 2853]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 603 is 2889
