You can use just one input on the source device: an iPad, iPod, Tablet, Computer if you can set the source device output to mono. Typically, you can do this under Accessibility options.

Set your iPad or iPhone to Mono

Launch the Settings app on your iPad or iPhone.

  1. Tap General.
  2. Tap Accessibility.
  3. In the Hearing section, turn Mono Audio On

Then use a cable like this but connect only one end (red or grey) to one of the combo jacks on the ToneMatch mixer. This will give you both sides of the stereo track (combined to mono).
