Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [683, 2389, 1621, 1429, 1381, 1369] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [683, 1369, 1381, 1429, 1621, 2389]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 683 is 2729
