Bass Station II Connection Issues?

So....I recently bought a Bass Station II, and because I don't have an audio interface yet,

I just used a 3.5 to 3.5 jack and put a 1/4 adapter on it to connect from my Bass Station II to my computer's combo jack.

(And yes, I'll not be using MIDI, just audio.)

Then I opened Ableton Live and loaded up an audio track, and armed it and pressed record.

But the only thing that was being recorded was the microphone integrated in my computer,

and Ableton playbacked a weird feedback noise.


So is there any way of fixing this problem without having the necessity to buy an audio interface?
