Default One session louder than others

I'm running PT 10.9.3 on MacPro OS 10.7.5. I have mixed 7 songs, but for some reason, one is noticing louder than the rest. I checked all settings and levels and it is exactly as the others. Even the drums, which are routed via multi channel from EZDrummer2. It even shows louder in the print track. Any suggestuons?

What kind of level difference are we talking here?

It's very rare that every song on and LP will be identical in level until mastering.

It is about 2db louder. I know they are not going to be the exact level sonically, but it is completely noticeable, even the midi drums are louder which leads me to believe I did something unknowingly to raise the level that is not visually noticeable like fader volume, or volume automation. All the "numbers" match on every song.

Considering that you're there, with the sessions in front you, and we're not there, with the sessions in front of us, how could we possibly know what you did? There are hundreds if not thousands of possibilities here.

I have not done any gain automation, only volume automation. All the automation matches those on the other songs. I was just wondering if there were common mistakes done by folks so if your to going to reply to a comment, make it a useful one. Thanks.

Thing is we can't possibly give you a good answer without complete info. There's no such thing as TMI (too much information) to be given when asking for help here.

What metering are you using to make your determination? Not all metering will tell you the same thing.

Well, I found out what it was. A comp plugin was not staying in the setting I saved in. Like dverb, every time I open a session, I have to go back to each aux track click on the drop down box and select the same setting. The setting always goes to italic. So like I said, I was looking for an answer I knew would be simple. Yay me.

I think you've got a bigger issue if you have to recall a saved state of your plugin. That is not normal.

I think so, I'll be upgrading to PT12 soon, so hopefully that problem won't be one much longer.
