    I have been dinkin around with Connect and Logic for months. Finally after a good deal of frustration I put it to rest and discovered other less efficient workarounds. When I saw your post today I was Seasonally "joyous". Things are already working better and am eager to hear more posts on Logic and Montage. Very much appreciated Cassie!!

    I figured out how to import a MIDI song I created on the Montage into Logic, where I can edit it or tweak it to my hearts content. Now how I do I export it back to the Montage?

    That is a Logic Pro question. You need to look up in their documentation how to export a MIDI File. Each DAW has its own setup for exporting data as a Standard MIDI File... just make sure it uses the extension: .mid

    Oh, I see. Of course, I can save the .mid file on a thumb drive and load it in the Montage that way. However, i think that it would be convenient to have this transfer take place using the Montage Connect plugin. I wonder, is this something that is being considered for a future update?

    No. There are two many different DAWs. There already exist a method to move things the other direction. Things naturally fall to earth (gravity) I wonder if there is something being considered to reverse this process so it's as easy as falling to earth. Maybe in an update? :)

    Seriously, we tried something like this on the previous flagship, and frankly, it proved too difficult for most to use. It took place via Ethernet, required a password, and the ability to establish a network and to write directly to a USB stick connected to the XF, from the computer. It remains mainly unused by most - too difficult for the average user to get working. Alas. To be fair the computer companies kept changing protocols... so it was probably abandoned for several reasons.
