I'm having a difficult time troubleshooting this in my mind but I wanted to throw my two cents worth and try to help out as best as I can. So here's my go into what the problem MIGHT be.
When you plugged in your Tascam, you changed the form in which you're sending the midi input AND output in Logic. (I'm assuming at least.)
The way to fix this then would be to go Logic Express > Preferences > Audio. Make sure that the input is the Tascam and select the output to whatever you want it to be. If it's selected as "Built-in Output," the speakers of your computer will produce the sound. If is has the Tascam as the output, then it's sending the output to the interface where you'll need to either have headphones to plug in or some other form of monitor.
Hope that was the answer you were looking for!
Thanks for your interest and response....still not working.
I went to Logic Express > Preferences > Audio and everything is as you stated.
When I play my keyboard controller there is nothing moving in the midi window down on the Logic Toolbar, but
when I press the Caps Key and the little keyboard appears on the Logic screen and play my computer keyboard I hear the sound coming out of my speakers and the Toolbar at the bottom of Logic is moving showing midi.
I also have a Midisport 2x2 Midiman interface and when I play my keyboard controller it works fine.
I wondering if there is something wrong with my Tascam Interface.
Anyway, I'm tired of messing with the Tascam. Since I don't need audio at this point I'll do everything in midi and at some point maybe I'll just buy a new Audio/Midi interface.
Unless you have any other ideas...that'll do it.
Thanks again for you help

I too was experiencing the same problems as you and it wasn't making sense to me. Then I clicked on the click track and noticed that it was making noise when I hit my midiboard. Then Boom *Lightbulb*, all you have to do is go to Track<New<Software Instrument<Create. Then go to your library and double click on the sound you want, or you can go to where you plug-ins and select what you want from there. I really hope this helps, please get back to me and let me know.
I decided to just stay with just midi. I don't sing and don't need any audio imput at this time.
I'm using the Midiman MidiSport 2x2 interface which is just midi as you know and everything seems to be working pretty good. I put the Tascam interface aside for now. There are a couple of small glitches which are unimportant at this time. The main thing is that I'm up and running for now. As things progress and issues arise I'll address them.
I appreciate you responding to this thread and good luck to you.
