The unit is not offering any built-in audio interface and VirtualDJ will use your computer’s built-in sound card by default (if not any other is chosen).

Depending on the sound card you need to use, manually create the necessary Master and Headphones audio configuration. See more in Audio Setup of VirtualDJ Manual
