It has an eighth inch jack which normally you'd use with a converter to a quarter inch jack to plug into an amplifier.

You may be able to use one of these with the adapter to adapt into a usb connection that will connect to the computer. They are designed for guitar but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work with a violin, they basically show up in Windows as a microphone, so you can tweak the levels etc to fine tune the sound coming in (though you may be able to do this from your software as well).
