Hi, I am using BiaB for my backing tracks, converted to an MP3 file and loaded onto my IPad. From there it's vocal and acoustic guitar.
When I plug a mini jack to a 1/4" into my speaker or Mixer it's all good.
I have a TC Helicon voice solo which I want to use as a foldback speaker (I'm old and deaf.) I wanted to use the XLR/1/4" combo input for the IPad but only half of the signal comes through. If I pan the signal on my iPad to the right (I'm using an app called Onsong to enable me to do this) I get a full signal. At first I thought there was an issue with the Helicon but if I try the same thing with my JBL powered speaker the same thing happens, but using the second input which is a 1/4" it's normal.
So in short am I right in presuming a XLR/1/4" combo gives a different signal to a dedicated 1/4" stereo jack.
Confused but appreciate any comments.

Balanced mono is not stereo.

The 3-pin XLR connection is a mono connection. The 1/4" balanced connection takes what looks like a stereo audio cable, but it's not a stereo cable. It's a mono connection. The article below describes what happens in an unbalanced versus balanced connection and the different cables used.

Balanced versus Unbalanced

So just one last question to tidy up.......
If I bought a mini jack to XLR ....will that solve the issue of panning the sound to right or left.
Please say yes cause I just bought one on E Bay!!

XLR is still a mono connection. At best you may have the mono signal to both LEFT and RIGHT. You would need to let us know your complete signal path with cables/adapters listed to help us more.

IPAD to this adapter, to this cable, to speaker, etc.
