WaveLab Not Responding to PC's Volume Control

Demoing WaveLab, I’m surprised to discover it is very loud. In fact, its output completely bypasses my Windows laptop’s volume control and goes straight to my Presonus Studio 24c interface. I had to set WaveLab’s Speaker Configuration gain to -12dB so it matches the levels I’m used to from past audio editors.

Is there some way to bring the volume control back to my laptop? Thanks.

Edit: I found the issue, I think. Since WaveLab doesn’t use Windows’ MME container, audio is routed directly to my Studio24c interface.

That’s correct.
