I'm thinking about buying a boss GT-8 and apparently its possible to connect it to a computer via a digital out in the back. What I don't understand is what type of cable its supposed to take as well as how it works? I have Guitar Rig 3 and Amplitube and I have a fairly new pc.

So can anyone explain:

*What is required?
*How does it work?
*Where can I get anything required?

The gear:

* Epiphone Les Paul Custom
* Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 String
* Fender Squier P Bass
* Blackstar Stage HT-60
* Original Crybaby
* EHX Small Clone
* Boss DD-3
Doesnt that unit have a USB output you can stream audio down to the computer?

if not, you will need to use SPDIF digital cable or get an audio interface such as the Line6 toneports and run the main outs to that.

recording questions belong in the R&R form BTW
the gt-8 does not have a USB slot.
