Make it so I don't have to use Ableton to play live backing tracks

I do all my work in Studio One 4 and love it. I'm making backing tracks in Studio One, but then to play live, I export stems and use Ableton Live only because it lets me put all the songs on one page in session view so I can make sets in any order or jump around. It's a lot of steps and I would like to stay in Studio One.

It would be great if there was a module similar to the "project page" where you could export the multi-track stems you wanted to keep for each song. Then you would need  a simple way to create a set or launch an individual song in a live setting from a controller or laptop . Atom integration could let you assign the pads to a particular song to launch.

Yes yes yes.  A live player for studio one content to be used as a controller during worship services. ATOM control over songs and the stems within a song. "Play song  #×", repeat, insert etc... songs could be layed out in verse chorus verse2  etc.. and the "playlist" could allow for the ordering or "sequencing" of the stems for each song each "performance". In addition a running clock with click track, cues, and midi tracks to support lighting. An interface to allow patch control to a keyboard controller using vsts and an electronic drum kit and you could totally dominate the windows side of a very lucrative market screaming for a solution
