I want to broadcast my live shows in Periscope or Facebook Live without any crowd sounds, so I feed my sound into the headphone/mic iPhone jack. But the sound is high-pitched and screechy. I tried various adapters, reducing the volume, etc., but nothing works. Any ideas?

Try the Line input of your soundcard instead?
Here's a technical explanation of the differences courtesy of Microphone manufacturer Shure:

I use a Traktor 2 soundcard with USB input from my laptop, which is running Mixmeister Fusion in Dual Output mode, in conjunction with a Numark Stealth controller. The soundcard has headphone and sound board outputs, and I have a splitter to run one to sound board, the other to my iPhone.

I think what I need is an attenuator that will reduce my line output to mic-level db. The soundcard has TRS input, and the iPhone normal TRRS. Would something like http://amzn.to/2euKs69work?

If you only have a connector with just one ring, that means it's only suited for Mono connections. You can of course tune down the Stereo Line signal with the attenuator, but you will at least lose the second stereo channel. (If you got bad luck, the connector will pick up one ring of your stereo jack as either GND or VCC reference signal or it will pick up both channels as one signal).

What you need is something to split your stereo Line signal into two seperate Mono signals on separate connectors in addition to the attenuator for reducing the Line signal level.

I got a used -35db attenuator for $15 and that will do the trick. Still waiting for the Periscope update, which they promise will solve a couple of remaining problems.
