    Hi,

    Does anybody know if there is a possibility to connect the instrument to the iPhone and practice with the iRealBook play along through the headphones.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, but would I still be able to hear the play along tracks from the iRealBook while hearing the bass?

    Just use a small mixer, or the effects loop of your amp if you have one.

    What I am trying to do is minimize the practice set up and have a quiet practice through the headphones while my daughter is a sleep. Also I would like to know about this possibilities so I can pass it onto my students.

    iRealBook player is great, way simpler than Band in a Box and allows me to go through the changes even input the original tunes which is super easy without recording the piano.

    The transposition of charts with midi playback is a great idea, a thing that realbook.us has been doing for years.

    Thanks guys,

    iRealBook is a mile apart from the realbook.us. The sampling is much better and you are able to edit end input the chords.

    I am not sure if the iPhone can run two apps with audio output simultaneously.

    I will look into the NSP tomorrow when I have more time.
