I'm not familiar with vokoscreenNG, but from a quick look at its github
page, it seems like it has native pulseaudio support. I would suggest
going through its settings and verifying that the correct audio input
device is selected before starting a recording. You can also verify that
it is indeed respecting your source selection by checking the
"Recording" tab of pavucontrol during a recording session.
