Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [663, 2379, 3237, 1833, 741, 1209] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [363, 1419, 1581, 1713, 2229, 2757]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 663 is 3369
