Using Patchbay to create 2 headphone outputs?

    My interface only has one headphone output, but I have just discovered that a friend will be visiting over the weekend to see we can jam and record together.

    Having only one headphone output, I have thought about purchasing a headphone amp with more outputs, but then it occured to me that maybe the patchbay could do a job of splitting the signal.

    A connection from the interface headphone output into the back input of the patchbay, giving 2 headphone outputs on front of patchbay...... is that likely to work?

    in principle that will work
    given the HP amp has the grunt to drive two HPs

    but a Y-cord would ba simpler way and won't involve the patch pannel
    and may negate any chances of shorting things out

    simple Y-cord
    see the RANE site for details and info on driving headphones
