Preparing for stage performance

Hi there,

in about two weeks I'll be doing my first ever live performance of my tracks. I want Ableton Live to run my tracks in a continuous manner, without me needing to start any scenes or clips. I will want to add effects manually via hardware: Kaoss Pad 3+ (drums/percussions - monitor outs 1/2) and AirFx (pads/atmospheres - monitor outs 3/4), the rest will be routed to monitor outs 5/6, after that all signals go through a Pioneer mixing console.
At the moment I'm looking at which tracks to perform, so I haven't set up anything yet.
I'd love to get your recommendations and advice in how to get this up and running within the wishes I stated above. What do I need to do?
Thanks a lot for your time and best regards!

    I'd personally (and wished I thought of this when I last performed) construct the whole set (without adding any effect automation) in arrangement view, and place markers above certain points on the timeline instructing you when and what effect to be adding at that point.

    This way you can still have the bare bones of the track laid out, with you adding all the live stuff (improvisational sections, tweaking the parameters) on the night.

    No answers, yet. Am I asking something that is obvious to anyone? I'd really appreciate any help I can get!
