Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [823, 2459, 3277, 1843, 2969, 883, 2489] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [307, 787, 817, 2201, 2441]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 823 is 3481
