Hello weeo!

Thank you for your post. You could use the T1 for both iPads if you have enough free inputs - e.g. one iPad into channels 4/5, the second iPad into channels 1/2 or 2/3. 

If you wanted to keep the other inputs on the T1 free, you could use a small mixer to sub-mix the iPads, then output from the small mixer to the T1 as you mentioned.

Hope this helps!

Re: 2 ipads into channels 4/5

Thanks for your reply. I only have 1 "free" channel. I tried a "Y" adaptor with no success so I,m trying out a lead from stereo jack to xlr mono which i'm hoping will work. It involves using resistors etc. and as far as i am aware, you can't buy them pre-made. There are tutorials on line to help ,thank goodness . If that isn't successful, i have a small mixer that i'll try but i'm hoping the lead works as the mixer just means more things to carry and set up. I'll get back to you with a progress report.   

Thanks again for the input.

Hey weeo,

As the T1 is a mono mixer, using just one channel for each iPad would also be fine if you wanted to keep the other inputs free. 

Rather than using a 3.5mm stereo jack to XLR cable, though, I would instead use a 3.5mm stereo to 1/4" mono cable. These cables can vary in terms of audio quality, so using a separate mixer for the iPads would be the safest option for fidelity.

Sorry i missed this post Dylan.

The lead i made up from stereo to xlr seems to be working ok.

I hadn't even thought about doing it to Mono jack so i'll give that a try. 

Thanks for your input

Much better with the mono jack lead, thanks for the tip, Dylan.
