Is there a way to build a DJ set with loops only (no full tracks)?

I would like to be able to mix my songs using only their loops (no full tracks).

I can not load all the scenes of all my songs at once, it would be too heavy for my processor.

The problem is that I want to avoid using the mouse to the maximum, which is the only way I know to import groups of scenes.

How could I do that?

    If you only use some loops, you might want to crop them to make the files smaller and save them in a separate location.
    After that, load them all into Live.
    Live should be able to handle loading many loops at once. It just takes a while before they are all analyzed and ready to play.

    Even if that does not work, you can still load smaller amounts of clips at a time. Ok, it will take you a few seconds longer to load them all, but I assume you do this kind of preparation before going to a dj gig, right? So you do it once, save the project and open that project when you need to play.
