Using external USB sound card for pre-cueing - Windows Djay Pro

I'm quite new to both DJing and Algoriddim's software, but I've set myself up with a Numark Mixtrack 3 and Djay Pro for Windows 10. I realised that I needed an external sound card for cuing so bought myself a USB sound card which works fine on its own. My issue is that I can't seem to figure out how to set up Djay pro (Windows) to use it for pre-cueing tracks through my headphones. I seem to only be able to set it as my main output instead of my speakers - if that makes sense?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Every driver that i know under windows uses ASIO, every DJ software and any DVS solution under window will use ASIO.

Except Mixxx which allows MME, WASAPI, ASIO,Directsound, all others DJ software under windows uses Asio.

You don't have a choice to use ASIO if you want to support all drivers that exist for all the controllers on the planet and external soundcards.

Please confirm that Asio implementation is planned, this is the most important feature...
