1) Run a new track through Mixed in Key - Label Accordingly
2) Save the new track into Ableton
3) Pull the new track into a dedicated prep scene
4) Warp mark this first clip and leave original start point - Label as Original
5) Duplicate this clip 6 times below
6) On the second clip down, start the track from the first main beat and also set up a nice auto trigger loop on the end so you never run out of track.
7) 3rd clip down starts on the first main beat/bass drop and has the final loop.
8) 4th clip down starts on the breakdown and has a different loop set right at the end of the build (peak).
9) 5th clip down starts on the second drop and has the final loop.
10) 6th clip down has a nice groove loop chopped out of the track
11) 7th clip down has a hook or recognizable sound/sequence from the track, usually set as a single play, but easily loopable.
Generally I only use Clips 2-7, so 6 clips. The first original clip only gets used at the opening of a set, or if im using the track in a demo.
After I have all these clips set up and labeled accordingly, I simply shift-click all the clips (selecting all), and drag them over to save in my library. That way the next time i want all those clips, i simply drag and drop the root file over from my library into my performance template, and there they all are, 7 prepared clips, ready fro me to jump around inside the track, or simply use elements like the groove loop or the hook (eg acapella).
