Hi JenniferRodriquez,

Welcome to the forum.

The ‘To Host’ USB connection on a Motif XS is for MIDI data only and does not carry audio.

The main L/R analog outputs on your Motif need to be connected to suitable amplification in order for you to hear it, even when in use with a computer based sequencer such as Logic.  I’m assuming you’ve already done this, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

You also need to be using an External MIDI Track in Logic for the Motif voices (not an instrument track).

When working with a program like Logic, most people will put their Motif in Song or Pattern Mode, which will enable you to use up to 16 different voices simultaneously.
