A random variable is a function that takes a defined value for every point in sample space. – Statistical Theory and Methodology in Science and Engineering – Brownlee – pp. 21. Given this I would say the process is the random variable and the output is just a quantification of what the random variable is doing. In other words – the random variable is going to determine the output distribution and all the numerical record is doing is cataloging that fact.
