Cubase 12 - Won't detect my audio

I might be an idiot, however. I finally got my mic to run with voicemeeter (only way I could find with my specfific mic) and while I can hear myself through that, it seems cubase cannot as theres no audio detection at all. Scrolled through a lot of forum posts to try figure it out but nothing seems to work. It also records nothing, of course.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

How is your Studio > Audio Connections > Inputs setup? Is the Audio track using the correct Input? Is the Monitor button enabled on the Audio Track?
