Loud Quiet Sound?

     I've synthesized a sound in xFer Serum to go along with several others, however the sound itself is very quiet in contrast to the others playing just before and after it, Ableton doesn't seem to think it's very quiet though. When I play the song I can hardly hear the synth playing along with the other two, when I turn up the volume of that quiet synth to how loud I want it, the audio goes into the red.

     I do know about perceived volume, and actual volume, but this doesn't make sense to me. There also shouldn't be any phasing issues with other sounds because the only other instrument playing with the "quiet" synth is a snare that is sidechained to it, I've also compared the compressed volume to the original volume levels and they are both pretty quiet.
