Default My LOUD beat clips all my inserts plugins and Vu-Meter!

Hi everyone!
I have got a dumb question.

I have been provided with a beat that is squashed to death...(sigh...)

It is so loud that it clips the tranche of the mixer when I set the VU meter to Pre-fader.
Also, all my plugins are clipping.
How can I reduce the volume of this track before its is fed in the mixer???

Thanks a lot!!!

Put a trim plugin on the track and gain it down a few dB - should help.

Or highlight the entire region and call up the AudioSuite GAIN plugin and knock it back 3db.
