    why does my guitar sound like this?

    I am trying to remove the distortion from this guitar track.. it's a kind of high frequency crackle although the sound itself is not clipping.

    I have tried removing specific annoying frequencies, compression makes it worse and I don't know how to treat it!

    I can't post my soundcloud link right now

    I tried to get link to work for you. It didn't. I can open it but the link does not work.

    The first time I heard it there was a strange crackle going on. I wonder if it is an anomaly caused by the site?

    Or, is the distortion also on your recording?

    Yeah...there's some subtle background distortion.

    You need to provide more details about your guitar recording setup...the signal chain.
    You also have some reverb/delay thing...is that maybe the cause, too much signal making it saturate and distort.
