Greatly exaggerated waveforms in all my projects

recently I started seeing this weird problem where all recorded audio tracks appear to clip into oblivion

the one track where this doesn’t happen is reduced by -36dB, obviously not gonna do this to all my audio tracks

Ive checked 3 times each that no clipping is occuring into my soundcard, into the daw or to the final stereomix (as if that matters but hey)

Any suggestions? I am new to cubase 9, but not cubase in general so this is really weird

To the top right, there’s a small slider that controls the waveform zoom.

Ah, thank you so much! Really wonder how I dialed that one up to 11 without noticing
