Play music through USB Audio

To play music from a computer through the USB port of the Axe-Fx (USB Audio), connect the computer to the Axe-Fx with a USB cable. The music will be mixed into the signal without any other requirements. The signal is not going through the grid, so there's no need to set I/O > Input to USB. To adjust the volume of the music, adjust the volume in the music application on the computer or use the USB Level parameter in I/O > Audio.

There's no way to route the audio through Output 2.

The AX8 doesn't support USB Audio (input nor output).
