I use the bigger version of Logic but I think it works the same way on both. In order to use Aalto as an instrument plugin you have to add a soft synth track to your project. You can usually do this from the Track menu. Soft synth plugin tracks have a little blank bar just above the fader whereas audio tracks have a readout in this space showing where the audio track is patched into, usually main outs. Just left click in the soft synth track's blank space and you should get a pop up list showing you all the installed plugins and you should see Madrona's Aalto in the list. Now any midi note messages you creat or record on that track will control the Aalto instrument. Hope this helps!

I'm brand new to the synth so I've only seen the old UI in old YouTube news reels of yore but I like the new look. Not hard to see contrasts and sizeable is a great feature. Amazing synth!
