How do I use the USB port for recording on my Fender® Mustang™ and Fender® Bronco™ 40?
The Fender® Mustang™ and Fender® Bronco™ 40 are capable of recording audio into DAW (digital audio workstation) software applications such as Ableton Live Lite 8 Fender Edition (included with the Fender Mustang amps). In order to record sound in to your computer, you will need to have a playback device installed. The Fender Mustang and Bronco 40 amps provide audio recording only, and not playback. You can use your built in sound device or a third-party device for your playback. Please check with the manufacturer of that device for correct installation and set-up. In order to use the Fender Mustang amp with your Windows computer, you will need to install the Fender ASIO driver. You can download that driver here: http://www.fender.com/support/articles/fender-universal-asio-driver. Once you have installed this driver, you can use the DAW software of your choice, and select the Fender Mustang or Fender Bronco 40 amp as the input or record device. You will then select your chosen playback device for playback.

When using the Fender Mustang or Fender Bronco 40 with your Mac computer, you can simply plug in the amp, and select it as the record device in your DAW software.  When using a Mac, there are no drivers necessary.  You will want to select either the built playback or a device of your choice for playback.
