It's in fact simple but somewhat tricky.


You don't need MidiPipe for this. Just use the IAC bus built into OS X. Open the utility 'Audio MIDI Setup', double-click the IAC driver icon and check the box 'Device is online'. Now the IAC bus will be available as MIDI output of Logic and MIDI input of midiStroke.


HOWEVER, here comes the tricky part...


You need to take special action for preventing a MIDI FEEDBACK LOOP! The safest way is this: open the environment layer 'Clicks & Ports'. Create a new monitor object and cable the IAC port from 'physical inputs' into that monitor as a "dead-end".


BTW, midiStroke seems to be a useful little app, thanks for mentioning it.
