Is the correct behaviour? This is the Windows vst v64 btw. If I turn the track up to hear what the plugin is doing, it sounds pretty good, really good in fact, but I can't believe the original pedal dropped the volume by so much.
It all depends on the input level, I've set -18dBFS as my 0dBm point in testing and calibrated everything according to the original service manual using a sine wave, can you please check that you are hitting ti at around that level?
