Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The octatonic modal family [879, 2487, 3291, 3693, 1947, 3021, 1779, 2937] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [201, 537, 579, 2337, 3216]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 879 is 3801
