How can I send to a second output without requiring re-input?

I've been reading a bit, and I've discovered Pipeline.  This would be ideal for my needs, but if you put it on Main, and you don't have an input stage coming back in, Main will go silent.

What I -need- to happen is to be able to send the output of Main to two devices at once.  Both are ASIO, and reachable by ASIO4ALL.  That's not a problem.  The problem is in how to simultaneously route to both once I have them in the devices for the song.

I read somewhere about using a bus track, but that would imply that you re-route your entire project to go through the bus, and then to main.  Assuming that what I want to do is even possible.

I'd like the absolute minimal re-routing whilst achieving the objective.  Just bear in mind that where I'm sending it will not return the sound, altered or not.  All I want to do is basically copy the main output to an extra output device.

Could I get an assist, please?

That Main is actually a hardware output, not a bus.

And since the Main output (along with the other Hardware output) does not (currently) support SENDS, you'll need to route your tracks/buses to an Intermediary (as you already guessed) bus and use it to copy the audio to the additional hardware outputs.
