Pod into PC to jam along with tunes on the PC

How do I go about doing this?

There are several methods. You don't mention what model Pod you have, bu if it uses a usb connection to your computer, it should become your soundcard when connected. Your computer tunes will play through the Pod, so connect your speakers/headphones to your Pod to monitor the sound.

Or, if your Pod has a cd/mp3 input you could route the headphone output from your PC into the cd/mp3 input.

Or, have you tried connecting the outputs (headphone out would be best) of your Pod to the microphone input on your  PC?

Another alternative is to use a small mixer, and connect both your computer and your Pod outputs into separate mixer inputs.

This is a Bass Podxt and there is no cd/mp3 input in the pod...only midi.....there is a Model Out along with headphones Out

I tried putting the the headphones out to the mic in on the PC but that didn't work (do I have to attach the USB too at the same time?)....I'll try again, this time with the USB connected.....do I have to go to the line6.com website too and if I do, what do I do on the website?

If I put the PC out to the Pod In then where do I plug my bass?

I'll try again.......

Otherwise, the Pod gets sold and I'll just get a mixer, that seems the easiest solution.....it's just that I'd like to use the effects and tuner on the Pod too

+1 to Silverhead

Have you connected the Bass Podxt to the PC via USB ?

If you have never done this you will need drivers.

Connect your Bass Pod xt to your computer and run Line 6 Monkey. It will help you identify and install the required drivers.
