Low playback volume

Granted I haven’t used Cubase in some months, but now going back to it I find that the level through my monitors is unusually low. The meters show plenty of level.If I crank the control room level up to a decent listening level, I get distortion. The headphones seem to have plenty of volume. My monitors aren’t exactly the best, but I also turned up their volume on the back. Still not enough volume. My crummy computer speakers that I use to A-B mixes seem to have plenty of level.

I’ve tried everything I could think of and am stumped. I’ve Have I overlooked something simple? Are my speakers the problem?

Cubase Pro 8. UR44 interface.

Thanks for any suggestions.


What do you compare with?

And that is what exactly? Have you checked the DSPMixFx?


Could be.
