I started with the easiest, the piano and the rest of instruments I have installed with logic, creating a new external midi track.I see when I touch any note and I can write them in my project but they don´t sound... even when I reproduce the whole project. I can do everything with loops and samples but anything with my keyboard...


Thank You!

You don't want an External MIDI Track. You need to create a Software Instrument Track.


Create a new Software Instrument Track. At the top of the Channel Strip for the track you will see a button called Setting. Load an instrument into the Setting slot. You can load the instrument by Click holding on the Setting slot or you can load from Media>Library.

oh my holy Sh++! Sometimes I think I am stupid...Now Its working fine!

Thank you guys a lot!


You're welcome! Glad it's working.




You have a MIDI controller, it only sends MIDI data so that is why you need the Software Instrument Track to play sounds in Logic.


If you had a keyboard that made its own sounds and you wanted to record that in Logic you would need to use an External MIDI Track.
