Exclamation Using Ableton for live performance

Hi,

I''ve been a hobbyist for a long time but have only recently started taking music seriously. I much prefer the creative side, the technical side is not one of my strengths. I make electronic music with lots of strings, pianos, horns etc. How do I get my individual tracks ready for live performance. Panning, mixing, eq-ing etc aren't my forte. Ideally I would like to be playing of the songs tracks from my laptop while playing one VSTi live. How do I go about this. From my understanding Ableton Live works on "clips". Is an audio track for one instrument - for example - 4 minutes long work I would I need to break that down into individual loops?

Thank in advance

Ableton is definetyly the way to go for electronic live performance! There are so many different ways of structuring a live set! There countless tutorials on Youtube!
basically there are absolutely no limitations in what U break down as individual clips ore bounce together! It's a matter of how much controll over individual elements you want to have later in your Live-Set!
