Which lever meter shows the end result?

Being a Reason newbie, I get overwhelmed by all the meters everywhere. I want a meter that shows what will end up in my exported audio (wav) file.

Having included an MClass Mastering Suite in the Master Inserts Section, I would expect that the MClass Maximizer Output level meter would show the final output. After all, the Maximizer is the last device in my MClass combo that is routed straight into the hardware interface.

Watching the big meter of the hardware interface, however, it shows levels way beyond 0 dB whereas the output level meter of the maximizer does *not* exceed 0 dB.

Why is there a difference? Which meter should I trust?

grateful for replies,
Sven
