3rd mode:
Scale 387
Scale 387, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 2241
Scale 2241, Ian Ring Music Theory

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The tetratonic modal family [99, 2097, 387, 2241] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [927, 999, 2511, 2547, 3303, 3321, 3699, 3897]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 99 is 2241
