[Ardour-Users] Overdrive artifacts after export

Thank you so much for ardour!

I have created a short track on 24bit/96kHz that sports some rather 
heavy synthesized sounds and vocals. There is a hard limiter set to 0db 
on master out.

On export to 16bit/44.1kHz, there are very audible overdrive artifacts. 
They disappear when the consumer media player is set to a low volume.

Obviously the mixed down track is mixed too loud-- but how can that be? 
Pre-export the track sounded great at any volume.

Thanks for your expertise!
