Default during record, signal will not exceed -4dBFS

Just started a job at a new studio. Using an 888/24 and PT v.5.1.3, when recording a signal using any analog input, the signal is being clipped (or limited) prematurely, not coming anywhere close to 0 dBFS (-4dBFS was an approximation). The same thing happens no matter which input I select, and even happens on a second I/O, which leads me to believe there's a software setting somewhere (designed to prevent digital clipping?) and the threshold is way low. But where oh where do I adjust this setting? Or is there something else going on here? The fader on the record track is at unity gain, and I have the simplest signal path possible, with no plug-ins. When using the digital inputs, the problem disappears. I've tried using both 16 and 24 bit sessions with the same results. The answerbase mentions a problem with 888/24's connected to a Farm Card, but I'm positive this I/O is connected to the Core.

It takes a big man to cry; it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man
