    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?
  2. What's your meter reading on your master fader when you playback all three vocals at once? What kind of plug ins are you using?

    i am using a backing track and 3 vox.. I've got reverb in the Bus.

    I am just using compression and Limiting (the logic audio plug ins)

    The meters aren't in the red...

    Any ideas?
  4. Meters, meters.................? The master fader will be one meter you set up not plural, so I am still stuck, in the culmative gain of all the tracks at once are peaking your master bus.

    I am only familiar with ProTools software though so you still might have a problem with the plugs.

    And are you limiting an already compressed track?? Probably nothing to do with your scenario.
