I would like to be able to play an electric guitar using headphones and while following a play along on my laptop. Condo living and a beginner-what kind of interface would I need to make this happen? Thank you
(Not sure it worth an answer, but a bit long for comment)
Any sound card with direct monitoring would do. If you connect it to the PC, you'll get the sound from the play along and the sound of your guitar. Level between your sound and the play along can be adjusted by the amount of direct monitoring.
