Odd question but I'm trying to play music and a click through my Soundcraft Notepad, via my iPhone, so I can play along to it with my E-kit. Right now I'm only getting a mono sound on the music. Do I need to run a TRS Y cable to both of, say inputs 5/6, to get stereo?

A “Y“ cable is not stereo. You need TRS to split mono and then connect that to a pair of inputs that you can pan hard right and hard left.

If you are not using 9/10 I'd go with this. It is what I've used forever.

I thought of this but I'm sending my Focusrite into the board [my E kit] using the RCA's. Then the drums would be mono which is a lesser issue I guess.

1/8 to 1/4 stereo split cable. Use 5/6 or 7/8.

Thanks, then do I have to pan each channel?

I don't know your little board, but they are pretty much all similar. Those 5/6 and 7/8 are stereo. There are two jacks on each of those channel strips marked left and right. Plug in left and right on ONE of those strips (5 & 6 or 7&8 ) , adjust gain and roll. No panning needed.

Got it, thanks.
