volume issue

Hi all, I am working with Cubase 5 with latest updates installed. I am not sure what is going on but its done this from the get go. It seems like there is a hidden limiter thats turned on or something because the sound is always a lot softer then it seems it should be. I am not sure what is causing this, I only work with vst instruments. It always seems like its peaking when it’s at the right volume.

I can load up the same vst instruments in say…FL Studio…and its correct and sounds the way it should so it sounds like its some sort of setting im missing.

I am at a loss and need some help because its been driving me crazy. I also dont know what you all would need to know other then what I’ve stated to help out. Im using asio4all2 drivers.

Thanks in advance!!
