No you don't.
The sound will come from your TD. The GB settings can change the overall sound but you don't have to use it. Just choose no effects.
I had to tweak my TD settings a bit a bit to get the same sound as I do from the PA but it wasn't difficult. Just build or tweak a kit for recording. The Detailed drums helps my overall sound.
But....I just realized that I use my Zoom R16 as a controller for GB. Maybe that's why it seems so simple. I have not tried to run directly to the computer.
