Virtual Mix rack making my waveforms asymmetrical?

With VMR off: https://prnt.sc/tx60l1
With VMR on: https://prnt.sc/tx60qy

As you can see VMR is making my waveforms offset for some reaon, I'm using the AirEQ, the custom series EQ, and the Revival, all of them for boosting the high end a bit. For some reason it's only boosting one side of the amplitude instead of both equally which is creating this offset. Turns out it’s not DC offset because I used ableton's utility for DC and tried high pass it, neither fixed it. Is VMR known to do this? Can anyone help with this?

First guess would have been dc offset, have you tried a highpass eq at like 20hz?

It also does appear that your waveform was already slightly skewed to the upper half in the first place with vmr off

Yeah used that and ableton’s utility for DC offset, neither did anything. I checked in real time while tracking and I can see that the more I boost using the VMR eq the more offset the waveform gets, it looked like it was only boosting one side of the amplitude instead of both evenly.
