If the track is naturally quieter due to it's overall spirit, mood and arrangement then maybe not to worry about it and just let it be quieter.
Personally I wouldn't worry about 're'processing the quiet track to make it a bit louder even though it has already been limited once. You don't necessarily have to go "all the way". If you are not confident to do that, and insist that the tracks should have the same perceived volume - then yeah, turn the other ones down. But if you are doing it from 16bit files that have already been processed, this could be more destructive than pushing the quieter one.
What is the compilation for may I ask?
it's of a similar nature to the other tracks on the CD (all tech house style)
so i just pushed it by another dB with a limiter and that seems closer to solving the problem: i was worried that re-limiting a limited file would be a big no-no but it sounds ok
i might just roll with that!
