I found the problem. With my Systems and Motu the digital output level that
is found within the control panel under Sound, right click on device (Motu),
go to levels must be set at 100 %. This level does not affect the output
for Sound Forge (Version 10). Once again this affects the digital output
level on CD Architect when you try to read it on an outboard digital level device or meter. For mastering it is nice to see a true level meter, not just the computer!

To clarify in my mind, is this because you were using an ASIO driver for SF (of course unaffected by Win audio settings), and necessarily the Classic Windows WDM driver for CDA ? And the Win driver had an output level control set to less than full in Sound settings ?
