The three outputs can all be used at the same time. The parallel output is the same as running your bass direct with no SansAmp effect. It can be used anyway you like. It is a buffered output. It's also the same sound as leaving the pedal in bypass mode.
You could run the parallel out to the board to a separate channel and have the two tones mixed together. To get your uneffected and SansAmp tone into a bass amp at the same time you would need either an amp that has two channels, a blender or mixer pedal or an ABY pedal.
What exactly are you trying to do?
