The audio volume I'm hearing from Audition is separate from the computer's controls?

I have an iMac M1 using Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 USB preamp along with the Soundsource sound control app, and I noticed that when I mute or lower or increase the volume on my computer it doesn't effect audio in Audition, the volumn stays the same, but it will rightfully effect audio in other open apps like Safari. Also I visually will see Safari show up in the Soundsource interface when it's playing audio, from YouTube for example, but will not show sound playing from Audition when it in fact is playing sound, at first.

 

But then even when I eventually added Audition to Soundsource via Favorites and adjusted the volumn there manually, it still had no effect on the audio volume within Audition being played through the output computer/monitor/speakers. It just always sounds the same unless I manually adjust the volume in the Focusrite Control panel directly, where I can't control volume with the keyboard. 

So it's just strange that Audition's overall output doesn't repsond to the computers volume controls. Is it supposed to operate like that? I swear previously I was able to mute, lower and raise the volume I'm hearing through the monitors/speakers/headphones via my computers controls (not to be confused with Audition's mute or level controls in compressors, EQs, etc.).

No, Audition doesn't have the ability to control your sound device's output directly. If you set a level on your sound device, then you will be able to alter what you hear by altering the waveform level in Audition - but that's all. It's been like that for a very long time, and for most users, that's a very good thing; if you are monitoring to fixed levels, which most users are, then having them altered randomly is the last thing you need...
