Hi, this is a class compliant device, hence there are usually no volume controls at all. For a 1st generation 2i2 a mixer is available, see https://github.com/x42/scarlett-mixer . It might work with a 2nd and 3rd generation 2i2, too. It's a long time ago that I tested it with a 2nd generation 18i20, but it didn't work for this device. However, there's absolutely no need at all for Scarlett mixer volume controls, unless you want to rout for monitoring purpose. Loudness and distortion are caused by something, that is wrong with your setup, so you need to fix that.
