Vocal frequency fuzz problem

    I am recently new to recording techniques and the other day I recorded 3 vocals of the same track in order to double track it and add a little backing.
    When I recorded the vocal and played each individual one back it sounded sweet, however, when I played trhem all at the same time I could hear a kind of high end fuzz/click/distortion/high frequency sound, which was only there when I played all three back.

    I turned up the vocals really high (individually) and could hear just a little bit of spill from the headphones. Would this be the problem A culmanative combination of headphone noise or could it be something else?

    You dont say wehter youre playing this from tape or a DAW, but this is a shot in the dark. It sounds like digital distortion, maybe youre overloading the master bus??? Did you pull the faders down on all three to see if it goes away???

    You still dont say wehter youre playing this from tape or a DAW!!!

    What happens when you remove the compressors, limiters and reverbs???
    I mean remove them, not just bypass????

    Does the offending sound go away????
