Using the Boss RC-505 with Ableton Live

Hello Friends!

Resources on using the RC-505 with Ableton Live are scarce O_o

I'm currently running the RC-505 into my computer using a USB cable. I can then record into ableton by creating a connected audio track, but I have to monitor through the RC-505 directly. This works fine, but I was hoping to monitor through my computer.

When running the sound out from the computer (input RC-505, output Built in Mics in preferences) and turning the monitor on for the track...I receive feedback through my headphones. Any thoughts?

Running the RC-505 into something like a Scarlett might solve this?

Mines connected via usb, Ive got my audio output set to rc-505 (not built in) and it sounds great

you can then connect the headophopnes or monitors to the output of the rc505.

Now - I want to set up slave/master midi control. preferably the rc505 mastering ableton.
Can you find any docs?

There is a setting in the RC-505 to turn input on and off. That could help.

Hey guys! Would you have some time and patience to explain to a newbie how do you connect Boss rc-505 as an audio interface in Ableton Live please? I've browsed and browsed Google in search for answer, unsuccessfully though.
Thanks in advance!
