Inline In-Ear Monitor?
Is there a device where you can tap off the guitar cord to hear your bass with earbuds and still play through an amp? Would this work in a live situation where you don't want to aim the bass amp at your head but still need to hear yourself?
What kind of amp do you have? Make/Model?
I have the Markbass 121p. I think I could use the DI out, but I was seeing if I could avoid running another wire by piggybacking off the guitar out.
I was playing last weekend and ran into the problem where the stage was too tight and I didn't tip the amp back for fear of blasting the singer. I have zero live experience, so I didn't realize that I wouldn't be able to hear myself.
One consideration is that in order to hear your bass, the buds need to have a good seal in your ears, which, in addition to creating the conditions that allow bass to be reproduced well, also creates isolation. I suppose you might be able to run at a low enough volume that you'd be able to find a "personal mix" level that has you hearing the rest of the band bleeding through the bud tips. In my experience, I think you'd find yourself isolated from various sounds unequally. For example, you might end up mostly hearing cymbals, but not really getting any kick making it to you, or you might not be able to hear your singer very well.
the RockBox might do it. I use one for IEMs and don't see why it couldn't be used for a feed from the amp. it has a line level pad/switch on it plus a limiter and vol control.
accepts a 1/4" cable so you'd have to use a converter from the xlr on the DI.
send an email to the RockBox guy and ask him if it would work for you. He's pretty quick to respond.
This might get it done. Use the box as a 1/4" line through to your amp, and mix it to the headphone/IEM out. http://www.rolls.com/productImage.php?pid=MX56c
