I'm having a problem with my recording. I'm trying to record a song - a capella, just me times three - but the mic (which is supposed to be decent, though a little old) will only register sound if I put it to +20.00DB amplification while recording.
So I do that, I record it, everything's fine, though the peaks never reach more than halfway but okay. So then I put a reverb-effect on it. Sounds great through my headphones, but when I play it through the speakers, it crackles and rings. Now the problem is: I don't know what this phenomenon is called, so I can't fix it . I can't even look for help online.
I've tried overdrive and over-steered, literal translations (I'm Dutch) but to no avail. I'm thinking it's something I do wrong while editing, cause it's not like the mic is recording it that loudly...

It's most likely not in your editing, it's in your recording. If you have to add +20db to hear anything, you definitely have a problem. But, you need to provide more information. What type of mic are you using? What are you using to record? Sounds like your PC? Audio recorder? If it's a PC, what audio card are you using? What recording software are you using? Before anyone can help, you will need to provide detailed information.
