Hi. I'm a brand new user of this software and also very new to home recording myself playing guitar in general. I don't really know a good way to word this question, therefore I don't know how to search for the answer I'm seeking. I've tried, but not come up with anything. I've recorded guitar audio using my AudioBox USB 96. I can listen to the playback of this audio only by connecting headphones to my audiobox. I was wondering if there was a way to listen to and edit the sound through my computer speakers instead? Like if I wanted to boot up the software and edit tracks without having to plug in my audiobox, how would I go about doing that? Any answer or link to an answer would be appreciated. My knowledge and vocabulary when it comes to recording software is very limited. Thank you for your patience.

You can only use one Audio Device at a time in Studio One, so I would suggest connecting the Main Out on your AudioBox USB 96 to an amp with speakers or powered monitors.  If you want to use your computers built in Audio Device, instead of the Audiobox to hear the music, then you'll have to change which Audio Device you are using in the settings (Go to Studio One at the top Pull Down Menu > Options > Audio Setup tab > Audio Device).  Select which one you want to use from here.

I would highly suggest using the Main outputs on the AudioBox USB 96 instead of the built in sound card.  The latency and quality are likely much better using the Audiobox.
