Why does Premiere lower the volume of clip when nesting? Any way to prevent this?

This is a thing that's been bugging me for a really long time but I never bothered to ask about... I've noticed that the volume of a clip drops a few db if I nest it. This is really annoying because if I get the audio just right and then nest it later, I need to adjust the levels again. It's also annoying if audio has come from the same source and I want to nest one small piece of it, because then I need to manually balance it so it doesn't sound like the audio source suddently got quieter as the play head hit the nested clip. If I end up nesting something inside a nested clip, things can get extremely frustrating to work with.

 

Why is Premiere pro doing this? Is there a setting somewhere to make nested clips and subsequences play at full volume?

Is there a discrepency between the audio channel configuration of the nest and the audio sources within the nest?

 

For example, do you have a single track of mono audio within the nest, but the nest itself has been configured to have stereo audio? If so, then instances like that would probably account for the difference.

There's no discrepancy whatsoever. In fact, if I duplicate a sequence, delete the contents of one, and nest the other inside of the cleared one, the overall volume will be lower.

 

Or I can right click an individal audio track and `Nest...` it, and it's also quieter.
