The IAC* Driver allows you to share MIDI data between applications via virtual MIDI cables.

1. Open the Audio MIDI Setup (Applications -> Utilities > Audi MIDI Setup)
2. Open the MIDI window (Window -> Show MIDI Window)

4. At the "Ports" list you have all your Virtual MIDI Cables. It's recommended to rename it to something useful like "B-Step - Logic - Cable 1" by double clicking on the cable name.

Done, now your Virtual MIDI Cable is ready for use.
