I'm not familiar with either the Kaoscillator or the Komplete Audio 6, but from the pictures, it looks like you're running the line out from the Kaoscillator (an analog output) to the SPDIF input on the Audio 6 (a digital input). That won't work. You should be running the Kaoscillator output to either inputs 1 & 2 (on the XLR connectors, set to LINE), or inputs 3 & 4 (1/4" TRS connectors, just to the right of the SPDIF inputs you have it connected to now.) And set the Audio Input Device in Live to the appropriate setting.
