    I have a Genz-Benz Shuttle 6.2 head and a 2x10 Focus cab. I'm wanting to use the DI on the head for silently playing along to tracks on my computer and for recording. Is there a way for me to configure this so I don't have to constantly plug/unplug the cab?

    You don't have to configure it at all. It's no problem to run pretty much any solid state or hybrid amp without a cab. The only ones you have to worry about are amps with a tube power amp or very rare solid state amps with output transformers, such as the Warwick Hellborg power amps (the only ones I know of that are being made currently, and only the separate power amp, not the cheaper heads).
