How do I get my Yamaha DTX700K to play onto my Logic Project

I have recently bought the iTwo as I wanted to link the drums sounds I have made in my Yamaha DTX700K module and record/sync them straight onto my Logic project.

I have the USB going straight from the back of the interface into my Mac but I was wondering where my plug my jack cables. Do they both go into my L & R Outputs on the back of the Module itself?

I have put one in just the L for now and I can hear the sound coming back into my headphones via the interface but this is not being picked up by Logic itself.

What am I doing wrong? I would be very grateful if someone could help me please with some simple instructions. I'm very new to this sort of thing.

I created this little diagram for you. 

You don't necessarily need the MIDI Jacks if you are going to play all your sounds in using the trigger pads to trigger the sounds in the sound module. Kudos to you if you can play it right every time. 

Just set your levels accordingly, the DTX700K manual does not detail it's output impedance, you may need to toggle the instrument inputs to act as Line Inputs.
