VoiceMeeter won't recognize S88 MK2 as an input

I know the computer is getting something from the keyboard because Komplete Kontrol sound bars react to my playing. How do I get voicemeeter to recognize the input?

    not sure what exactly you are attempting to do??

    but if you are trying to route the sound from out of a application like.. maschine or kontakt whilst in standalone... then you need to set the outputs of the application you are using to either Voicemeter input or Voicemeter Aux... then you should get a signal into the voicemeter interface...

    you also need to make sure your audio tray device is set to either voicemeter input or Voicemeter Aux, depending on which of the virtual inputs is showing the signal...(that way you can hear the audio coming from whatevers assigned A1/A2/A3 etc

    turn off the busses (B1) they dont need to be active, you only need the A1's active on the virtual inputs(in the middle)..

    in reality voicemeter is only beneficial when you have an audio interface which supports asio.. as Voicemeter is based around the use of Asio supported interfaces

    that said, you can use the WDM or whatever is available in the A1 menu... i also would NOT recommend Asio4all for use alongside... as it not only adds an unnecessary layer on top of Voicemeter... but adds extra stress on the windows integrated audio hardware...

    but as i say... you can use voicemeter with the WDM/Realtek drivers etc, but it doesnt add much to what you would have without Voicemeter open if you dont have a audio interface which supports Asio..

    heres a demonstration of me using voicemeter and bussing the audio from spotify into maschine... but this is utilising a asio audio interface.. the only valuable take away from this video... is making sure your sample rates are matched... in the applications kontakt/machine/voicemeter & the windows settings, but again without a audio interface... you wont get this type of functionality out of voicemeter with standard realtek intergrated windows based drivers...

    going from the picture presented it shows the audio source... which strangely enough is coming through on the wrong side...

    all the outputs(audios signals) of applications are normally fed into the virtual inputs(in the centre) which are then heard by switching on A1/A2/A3 which are normaly the audio interface/speakers/headphones etc

    voicemeter can be a little confusing for people just starting out... i know i've been there done that lol

    just to make sure you understand what voicemeter is used for

    essentially the voicemeter application acts as a hub for audio applications to basically send all their outputs so that you may choose to route them between applications with the use of Busses(B1/B2/B3) which are then fed into audio track inputs... as was shown in the video above.

    So think of Voicemeter as a hub... for incoming and outgoing audio
