Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The hexatonic modal family [691, 2393, 811, 2453, 1637, 1433] is the negative of the hexatonic modal family [691, 811, 1433, 1637, 2393, 2453]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 691 is 2473
