Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [731, 2413, 1627, 2861, 1739, 2917, 1753] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [587, 601, 713, 1609, 2341]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 731 is 2921
