Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [703, 2399, 3247, 3671, 3883, 3989, 2021, 1529] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [43, 1409, 1541, 2069]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 703 is 4009
