You have to tell it to use input #2 in the command line?

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

I've already done that.

Turns out with the new Windows 10 update, some privacy settings gets disabled/Enabled:

Underneath Settings->Privacy->Microphone, I had to enable the setting: "Allow apps to access your microphone" for VB audio to gain access. Seems to be working now.
