    this is super helpful man, thank you. I’m struggling with this very thing. I have a nord 5 and am trying to run it just as it is, not as a controller, and I cant get it to show up and function. trying your advice now.

    THANK YOU!!!! I have been SO frustrated trying to get logic to control program changes in my sampler. Had it set up differently and no success.
    Just tried it your way and it worked beautifully. Brilliant 🙂

    When I bounce the recorded midi the track has no sound… I assume that it is because I only recorded midi data even though in playback I could hear the sounds from my keyboard. Trying to figure out how to make this external midi into audio (i think that’s what I’m trying to do …)

    Hi I have recorded a midi track into Logic, now when the midi notes have finished my Synth carries on playing, how do I make it stop when the midi notes say it should stop? also I can’t alter the midi notes either, whenever I press play in logic the synth plays which is not useful when making a track, please help

    whenever i go to create other tracks, the external sound for the original track is changed to whatever i set the other tracks to. any idea on how to fix this?

    Do I need a mid-hardware between the Mac and the keyboard like an audiobox?
