    The Motif XS (and any external synthesizer for that matter) can't transmit an audio signal over MIDI. MIDI only transmit digital data to control and play MIDI devices (sending Pitch, Velocity and other parameters). You need to use the headphones or audio outputs of your Motif XS to hear it's internal sound. If you connect it to the audio inputs of your audio interface, you will be able to record it as audio into Logic. Christian
