  • How to connect to keyboard and mic?

    I want to practice with a group of friends, a keyboard player and a singer. My question is how do we all connect? So we can play via our headphones if that makes sense? I have a Roland TD17KVX. Thanks in advance

    Loads of ways.

    All into a mixer and a Behringer HA400 headphone amp,

    PA system.

    Yamaha SessionCakes - one per person....

    etc etc

        I have a zoom livetrack l20. This has 7 headphone outputs and the whole band can set there own mix levels. If you all have an iPad each member can set theirs by themselves. Might be a bit expensive but they also do a l12. Both also record full multitrack to SD card.

        if a tight budget then a behringer desk and a multi headphone amp will do. Behringer do them also.

          With the micro amp it has only one input, how do we all connect together?

            The micro amp is a headphone repeater. You would feed it from the headphone output I’d a mixing desk. A mixing desk is a must for what you want to do. The only problem with this and a cheap mixing desk is you all get the same mix. If you want different mixes then you need to get something with multiple outputs or like the desk I suggested. A Behringer 801 mixer is really cheap plus the micro amp will allow you all to plug into the mixer. The mixer then goes to the micro amp and you can plug your headphones into that.

            you haven’t said how much you want to spend so the Behringer route is a cheap option and the live track not so cheap. I’m sure others will direct you to the many options out there.

              Is there anything via a computer to do the job?

                You would still need an audio interface that has enough inputs and enough outputs. Some audio cards come with their own utility allowing you to creat different mixes. I have a friend who has Scarlett 18i I think but it doesn’t have multiple headphone out just multiple outs. You haven’t mentioned a budget yet which makes it really hard to point you in the right direction. The L-20 I have does all you have asked for but could be totally overkill.

                  Thanks for your reply, i was hoping to sort this for very little money but understand I am maybe very wrong. Someone with a keyboard asked if we could practice together, not for anything as such.

                    The behringer option is by far the cheapest. The mixer and headphone amp are really cheap and would do the job.

                      Cheapest option would be: keyboard (phone) out to mix in on the TD 17. You would only need a headphone splitter and a jackcable. Do the vocal without a mike.

                          About 2.5 million VND, if that answers your question

                          need to buy a proper amp which will be expensive I know but wanted the ability to connect in practice in the meantime

                            OK - so Vietnam. About $100 / 80

                            So - I repeat what I said way up there ---^

                            "All into a mixer and a Behringer HA400 headphone amp,"

                            Now - I can only give UK pricing, and I don't know what availability will be like where you are, but let's work an example:

                            Behringer HA400 = 18.
                            So we have about 60 for a mixer.
                            So, plenty of choice at the price e.g. the 58 12 channel Behringer https://www.amazon.co.uk/Behringer-1.../dp/B000J5Y282

                            Job done. That will allow up to to 5 people to practice using headphones for your budget. (four headphones into the HA400, one into the mixer)

                            Obs could save money by buying a smaller mixer with less channels.
