Direct monitoring is much lower in level

Recording a vocal. On the vox track, there are no plugins, nor are there any on the output bus.

Monitoring through Cubase is much louder than when I turn on MR816 direct monitoring. I would have expected the gain to be the same (assuming no plugins anywhere through the Cubase monitoring path).

Or, I would expect to find a place to adjust the gain for direct monitoring.

Sure, I can work around it, but it is a pain. Am I missing anything?
