Distortion when using EWQLSO VST plugin even though soundlevel is below 0 Db
I have problems with distortion when using EWQLSO (East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra).
All soundlevels are held below 0 Db when mixing and mastering and no distortion can be heard when I use my headphones (Sennheiser MM 450-X) - only a slight distortion for high notes when I play the violin and when using my headphones with bluetooth and MME/DirectX, but not with ASIO.
But when mixing and mastering and listening to the music in my speakers I hear distortion with low frequencies (Contrabasses I guess, difficult to say) and sometimes the violin.
If soundlevels peaks around -0.2 Db and no distortion is heard in my headphones when wired and using ASIO why do I hear distiortion when listened to in my speakers?
As a sidenote - the output levels from EWQLSO (as audiotrack 1) is well below 0 Db namely around -6 Db. I use Limiter to increase sound level with Gain 6.1 Db which result in master track peaking around -0.2 Db.
Also when I export the .als file to .wav file on disk will I hear the distortion.
