    Just got some in ear monitors for my band. We have a show Saturday, so im in a bit of a hurry for a solution.

    My problem is that i can only get a mono signal coming through my in ears. I figured if i just routed the signal out of the headphone jack of my interface into the in ear transmitter I would have success. However, not so much the case.

    I only get signal coming out the left side, and no its not the headphones, ive tried several pairs, all the same result.

    What should i do to rectify this situation? Whats the quickest/easiest way i can deal with this before saturday?
     
  2. Sorry for the late reply, but what IEM system are you using? Most of them have a built-in mono/stereo switch. The make and model would be helpful.

  3. Also check and see if the 1/4 inch plug you are using is a 2 tip one. If it is a 1 tip that is a mono tip which is giving you only the one side. Are you using this for your bass or your vocals?

    Its a Nady system, and i realized that the entire thing is unbalanced, so i think thats the reason. No mono/stereo switch.

    The problem came cause we were using Shure SE's and theyre balanced. When i tested the headphones that came with the system (unbalanced it worked).

    So for the show we either dealt with it being mono or just plugged it in halfway ;).

    Would it work if we bought mono adapter tips?
