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.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
