    I wasn't sure where to post this, but heres my question:

    I have some drum loops on my computer I like to play along with sometimes, but how do I go about playing the drum loops and my amp through my headphones so I dont disturb my roomies? That is, hearing the drum loops AND my bass through headphones. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    it's a bit complicated so let's see if i can explain this. small earplugheadset (from walkman or discman) from drummachine/computer and over that my headphone from the bassamp. it's primitive, it looks stupid but it works for me.

    i do this late at night sometimes when i have to learn some songs.

    Could you burn your drum loops onto a CD and use one of these?

    I don't know much about them yet, but I'm going to take a look at it soon.

    $50 Behringer mixer, fed from computer's line out, or attenuated headphone out, mixed with your amps signal from preamp out.

    I use a Pocket Rock-it headphone amp for late night practice in the dorm. The tone's decent with my $20 Sony headphones. And it has a line in that I plug my laptop into via speaker/headphone out. Sweet deal for $50 new at any GC.
