If I have a bunch of tracks summing, the master will be hotter. Does this mean I'll have to pull down the master until it too is at the "sweet" level? I highly suspect some of my signal chain is causing this sort of issue.
Individual tracks.

By the time things get to the master, if you have any problems it's already too late. Reapers FX all all pre-fader, so lowering the master fader doesn't help if there is distortion somewhere in there.
