Hmm I guess you could usb to a pc for a basic output. Or you can di out to a recording interface like an m audio m track. Also you can go to a mixing desk. I think it just comes down to having plenty of features for different scenarios making it as versitile as possible. Might have a fart around with the DI tonight into my mtrack. Then into reaper. Se what kind of sounds I can pull out of it.
