Can I use my Rane hardware as an audio interface for Ableton Live when not using The Bridge?

This is only possible if there's a standalone ASIO or CoreAudio driver available for your Rane hardware:

 

 ASIOCoreAudio
SL 1 Y N
SL 3 N N
TTM 57SL Y Y
Sixty-Eight N N
MP 4 Y Y

 

Tip: If your Rane hardware doesn't provide a driver, a workaround is to run Ableton Live's transport via Internal mode in Serato Scratch Live.
