    Is the channelstrip that has the Guitar Amp Pro an Audio strip? Or an Instrument strip? It has to be an audio one.

    Have you set the channel strip to listen to the Tascam input?

    Did you arm the strip (click on the Red Record button?)

    Are you hardware monitoring (direct) through any software that came with your interface (sorry - I'm not familiar with the Tascam's software, if any)?

    If so, choose monitor via the software, and make sure that 'software monitoring' is ON in Logic's audio preferences (Logic Pro -> Preferences -> Audio -> Core Audio)

    What are your monitor speakers plugged in to? The interface or your computer?

    If you're trying to monitor via your laptop's speakers while using the Tascam's input, you need to create an 'aggregate device.' See here for details on how to set this up:

    it works with garageband strangely


    GB allows you to specify separate input and output devices; Logic doesn't. That's why you need to set it up via Audio/MIDI setup first.

    If you have speakers (or headphones) +connected to your interface+ and you still can't hear anything, and you have selected the Tascam in Logic's audio prefs. then it's another configuration problem, not this aggregate device issue.

    I get no signal on the channel strip


    In the I/O section of the channel strip, is Input 1-2 selected and Out 1-2 selected?
