In Generator the output at -3dBFS of Pink Noise (Full range) is too high and there is a great distortion/overdrive.
Has anyone encountered this problem?

That is a characteristic of random pink noise, it has a crest factor (ratio of peak to rms level) of about 10 - 11 dB. Clipping can occur above about -11 dBFS. Pink Periodic Noise is synthesised to have a lower crest factor of about 6 dB so allows higher levels before clipping.
