The unit is not offering any pre-defined audio configuration, as no built-in audio interface is available. Depending on the sound card you need to use, manually create the necessary Master and Headphones audio configuration.

By default VirtualDJ 8 will send the Master Output to the built-in (default) sound card of your computer.
