Route PC audio through a chain?

Is this possible? I have a stand alone software drum machine on my windows 7 PC, I'd like to route it's (The PC's output) through a chain so I can add some effects to it, ATM I comes out of OUT 1, but dry of course. I've tried adding a USB input block at the beginning of a chain but get no signal through it at all

Wouldn't this be a lot simpler if we could just select the USB channels we want the USB input block to use? Why does it default to 7 and 8 anyway?

So just to be clear, there's no way to route the PC USB OUT 1/2 into the chain?
Not as far as I know. Humor me just for a moment though......can you just bring up the audio tab of Hydrogen, and see if you see the FAS driver as a choice in one of the drop down menus? If you find it and select it, chances are you will then see where you can select 7 and 8. Trust me, once you find it, it will be painless.

Yes I did that when you originally suggested it, thanks, but AFAICS it's not there. To be fair, I think it's a long abandoned piece of freeware so I can't expect too much, but I find it perfect for my needs. I don't really want the complexity of a DAW just for my drums so I'll see if I can find a similar stand alone option with the appropriate USB configuration options.

If anyone knows of such a thing.... :)

Damn.......the only thing I have left is that I know for sure that Superior Drummer 3 comes with a stand alone version that works with the Axe III perfectly.......but it aint free. I already had easydrummer 2 so I did the upgrade to SD3 and its great, but still not cheap. Not sure if there are any stand alone free drum programs.
