Playing along to music with Head Phones

Hi Bassists, when I practice I like to play along to music, I’ve been doing this with music playing from my PC and head phones coming from my amp. I adjust the volume of the head phones so I can hear the music coming form the PC speakers. What would I have to do so that I’m getting both my bass and the music coming from my head phones?

Thanks

Tony

Hi @Browndog, what amp do you have?

Hey @Browndog,
There’s a few solutions that might exist:

  • check if your amp has an AUX-IN that you could use to feed the music from your PC into and use the amps headphone jack.
  • get a Vox amPlug 2 Bass Headphone Amp
  • get a Digital audio interface (DAI) to connect your amp to your PC

Well, that’s the ones that came to my mind for now :wink:

You’ve received some good replies to help with your situation. I bought a cool little Fender Rumble 40 bass amp for practice and use the aux-in line for an iPad or laptop and the headphones out line jack to listen while I practice. Good luck.
