If I take a note with frequency 101 Hz (roughly G2), then the critical bandwidth (CB) will be made up of 51 Hz on the low end and 151 Hz on the high end. This means that if I play a D3 with frequency of 152, it will fall outside the G2's CB and thus will not interfere with the G2.
However, if I analyze this with as a CB rate (CBR) (Fastl and Zwicker, Psychoacoustics, page 160, table 6.1), then both the 101 and 152 Hz notes fall within the 2nd CBR "bucket"... 0 to 100 Hz is the first CBR bucket and 100 to 200 Hz is the second. This means that the D3 will interfere with the G2.
So my confusion is that if I view this as CB, then that G2 and D3 are acoustically independent (linear) as they are outside each others CB... but if I view it as a CBR, then both notes are in the same CBR "bucket" and thus will be acoustically dependent (non-linear).
My proposed solution would be to consider the CBR as a "sliding scale" and thus create it using the G2 as a reference for the initial center frequency of the first bin and then create the remaining CBR from that. But even though there is mention on page 159 of this "slide", I'm am not at all sure this is viable or accurate or that I'm doing it right.
