I finally got my guitar Ibanez GRG 170DX with the Zoom G2.1U. However, given that I've been out of touch for well over 15 years now (used to play for a metal band before that), I don't want to subject the family to the noise I'm currently producing. Hence the issue

I generally practice with the backing track so possibly the ipod or computer with the guitar hooked into the G2.1U. How do I get the lineout from the G2.1U + iPod into the headphone? Is there some kind of mixer available? I don't want to spend a lot of money given that I've just blown a lot of money.

Any suggestions? Surely many folks must have faced this problem when they started out

You could plug a headphone jack from the Zoom into the computers "mic" input and use your volume control to mix the backing track together or does the Zoom have a CD/MP3 input?

That's what I initially thought of, but was a bit scared plugging in the zoom output into the mic input, not sure if it can damage the sound card if the input is high. The zoom doesn't have a CD/MP3 input sadly.

Looks like the mic input might be the only option I have though

I plug the output of my 100w marshall, zoom, and bass all into the soundcard of my computer. And this particular one was made in '01. you will be fine.
