OK, seems like a really stupid question but I'm a guitarist who is brand new to using a controller.

I have an m-audio axiom 25 and am having fun making samples and using VST instruments with my laptop. However, I want to gig with the thing and I'm not sure how to hook it up to an amp/PA or whatever for a live setting. Do I have to hook the laptop up to speakers and have the sound guy mic those, or can i somehow run the "midi out" channel on the back of the controller to an amp?

Again, pardon my ignorance. I'm just a guitar player with a new toy.
