how to import one track into another track

hi i don't quite know how to describe my question. I use ableton live lite fender edition, it came with my mustang amp, and while it is great for recording, it also only has six tracks, while for most songs, that is fine one for guitar, one bass, one vocal, one drum, and two free for either backing vocals, secondary guitar, piano etc. but recently several of my songs have had horn sections, and require many tracks, can i record six tracks, together, then import those six tracks into one track in a new ableton song? If so how can i do that

    You can, but it needs a bit more work.
    Record 6 tracks, make sure they are all perfect.
    Select the start and endpoint with the bar above your audiotracks, and export the tracks as one (master).
    Then open the new project, and simply drag and drop the rendered track into a new channel.
    That's it!

    There is probably a hard track limit in the Fender edition, so you cannot load more than six tracks concurrently. You can record them all together as one audio track (use the export function, as described in Near Earth Object's answer).

    Honestly, though, if you really need more than six tracks, then the Fender edition probably isn't the right tool for the job. You might consider upgrading Live, or moving to another tool like REAPER or something like that for when you do a mixdown.
