Levels Issue

V5 20 Beta 15,

Changing the output channel in tone generator, without changing the prefs/soundcard /Timing Reference Output channel too, results in a significant output level difference.

The workaround is to change channels in the Prefs panel Default Output AND Timing Reference Output, and disregard channel assignment from the generator window, which is overridden by the preference assigment.

I always changed channels in the Tone Generator w/out level disparities, previously, if memory serves.

Inconvenient but workable.
Perhaps I am doing something wrong with how I've setup this newest iteration of REW?

Are you using a loopback connection as a timing reference? If so, the generator signal is sent to both the selected output and the loopback channel. I disabled that in beta 7, but some folk found it quite useful, so it was restored in beta 10.
