ardour's output with default gain settings is bit-for-bit identical
with whatever was recorded.

why are you using this configuration? your delta44 does input
and if you're into audio in an even moderately serious way, you do all
i/o using the same sample clock, which here means the delta44 for both

your problem is likely related to the h/w mixer settings on the
delta44 or the other audio interface or both.
