    do you want to use ableton during your live performances, or are you looking to do something more along the lines of traktor, or even TT's.

    hmm, well I cant really help you much there. I would check out some Moldover videos, as he does some insane stuff with ableton in the live setting.

    Basic and/or essentials:

    Audio Interface
    Controllers mapped to your liking
    Ability, drive and dedication

    There ya go. As long as you have those things you should be able to pull it off.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
