You can record master output back to Live audio track. This is so huge time saver compared to regular "rendering", as works in real time, unlike rendering which only uses one core for some reason :?

Comping:

- Double-click on the looped clip. Turn on looping in detail view if it's not already on.
- Go back to arranger view and split the clip appropriately.
- Double-click on whichever split you want to audition takes for and detail view will gain focus.
- Hit the up and down arrows and watch the different takes come into view in the split clip in arranger.

Live doesn't constrain the movement to the beginning or end of the file so you need to be a bit careful moving between takes.

You can loop/play the entire original clip in arranger if you want to audition in context and the loop markers in the individual clips will remain the same.

If you want an overview of the entire file (this used to be the default), then just magnify it in detail view.

Mapping using AutoHotKey for single keystrokes and showing hiding panes. Just an example. Edit to taste. I have a Mac keyboard, hence the high-numbered F keys. Save to text file, name with the .ahk extension.

Note that I never use the computer keyboard/musical keyboard function and remapping those keys as I do will mess with that. Also, why single-keystrokes? So I don't have to take my hand off the guitar, bass, or keyboard.

Keyboard Maestro will do this on the Mac, and more easily.
