How do you output the sound to amplifier?

Hello,

I'm new to drumming, purchased an Alesis DM10 MII Pro electric kit in June and have enjoyed the journey so far. I'm having a hard time understanding if DrumLab is a product that I can use for what I would like to accomplish, and having a hard time searching for answers--hoping someone here might know of help guide.

What I have:

Alesis DM10 MKii Pro, simmons DA2112 amplifier and the simmons 12" sub, Volt 2 audio interface.

Overall:

Having fun with the amplifier speakers, everything sounds great, I have been able to record to my laptop through the volt 2 interface (albeit still working on my knowledge here to use it better)

What I'd like to do:

I'd like access to the customization through drum lab and the sounds for the drums. I understand (minimally) interfacing the kit to the laptop and am wondering how I could get the processed sound from drum lab out and put through the amplifier. I'm not tech illiterate and thought I could work my way through the concept, yet I am finding it hard to comprehend if additional hardware is required, and what I'm missing to know if this is something that can work for what I'm looking for.

    Select the Volt 2 as an output in DrumLab then use two jack to jack cables from the outputs of the Volt 2 to the inputs on the back of the DA2112.

    Thank you 🙁 I can't believe it's that simple. Would this work the same way with Adobe Audition as well while recording, or cause potential issues to troubleshoot as well? I have been picking up cymbals and researching how to mic them. If I add a mixer to the setup, how would this change the interactions? (I've been looking at an 8 channel behring xenyx mixer that also has a built-in interface.)
