Low Interval Limit

Low Interval Limit is a concept that defines the lowest pitches at which intervals can be clearly perceived without sounding muddy or indistinct. The Low Interval Limit shown below is not an absolute rule. However, placing the interval lower than this guide line is a real risk that the resulting sound will not work well due to overtone corrosion within a normal harmonic context.
