Sorry for the ignorance but I am wondering what I need to purchase when I actually do start using my new Giga computer. New house and new baby 15 months ago and it is taking alot longer than I would have ever guessed!

I could go into my VS-2480 as a gateway to my Mackie monitors. Is it possible to use a headphone out on my computer while using the RME??? If that is the case than I could just get a Big Knob or something. But getting from digital to audio is confusing me....

Thanks for any response!
