help setting up system-8 with ableton

Postby Acidizer » 10:59, 30 August 2017

i am trying to set up my S8 with ableton. i want to use the S8 as the sound card/device so i can use the 'audio and midi over USB' and work without 1/4" cables.

i found a roland video for setting up the boutique with ableton (close enough i thought) though in ableton prefs, there is only one simple option: VP-03 2 in, 6 out.

though, when i go to prefs, i can choose between system-8 DX or system-8 WAVE.

so what should i choose, DX or WAVE? am i missing a driver or something? i have the SYSTEM-8 installed in control panel (windows 10)

can anyone who got their S8 working in ableton help out please?

thanks.

I am also having issues. Did you ever solve this? I would prefer to use my Presonus Audiobox as the audio interface but can't seem to get midi and audio to record.
