Directwave and sampling robot - wrong volume when exporting/importing samples

As the title. Directwave plays any imported sample at a wrong volume. This is 5.3dB lower than Sampler (not 5.2dB but 5.3dB) so if you turn up Directwave's channel volume at max, this will not be equal to FL's Sampler but 0.1dB higher.

When instead exporting with the Sampling Robot, The samples loaded in Directwave sound at a completely wrong level. Much much lower, no easy "turn volume knob at max" fix. It's a real pain to find back the exact volume of the Generator you've just sampled, since there are no dB instant peak meters in FL. I don't even want to try that because it is too annoying!! sorry.

Volume consistancy is extremely important when using the Sampling Robot. This should make the samples sound at the same exact volume as the sampled Generator.

Thank you
