Me and my friends usually have to jam during the day time because we all live in town houses which would disturbs the neighbors at night with our amps and guitars. So I thought it would be possible to use a mixer + headphone set up so we can play without amps.

We have 2 guitars, 1 bass, and we use a computer (guitar pro tab) as our drummer (so sad ), so the computer is effectively an "instrument". We usually have our guitars going through amps, and the computer (drummer) going through speakers as well.

So if we want to make a similar set up where we can listen to each other through headphones, I figured that I'll need a mixer and a headphone amplifier.

Trouble is I'm not sure what type of mixer to buy (I am not sure if the types of inputs on a mixer accepts the guitars / computers) and I am not sure about the setup it self (note: the guitars use pedals). I was thinking either

1) Guitar/Bass/Computer --> Pedals --> Mixer --> Headphone Amp--> headphones (I'm thinking this one?)
2) Guitar/Bass --> Pedals--> Mixer--> Computer --> Headphone Amp --> Headphones

I was thinking if these two would do the job:
Mixer: http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-802-Premium-8-Input-Preamps/dp/B000J5XS3C/ref=sr_sp-btf_image_1_17?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1402030294&sr=1-17&keywords=4+channel+mixer
Headphone Amp: http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-HA400-4-Channel-Stereo-Headphone/dp/B000KIPT30/ref=sr_sp-btf_image_1_23?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1402030228&sr=1-23&keywords=headphone+amplifier

I've tried searching online for a setup like this, but nobody seems to do this. It should be noted that I'm NOT recording, we are just jamming through headphones instead of amps.
