Can't record/playback when using external clock..

I am trying to drive the ableton midi clock using my Boss RC-300 looper.  I am using an Axiom as my midi port, when I enable midi sync I am seeing the tempo show as appropriate (though it seems to fluctuate) but in session view it is not letting me record or playback anything.  Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    When Live is set to react to an external clock, it becomes a slave. So no transport controls.
    What you should do is work the other way around: Live had to be master and send out a midi clock signal that keeps your Boss device in sync. Then you can record anything you want.
