    not 100% sure i know what your asking but ill try. If you expand the master channel in the arrange view (drop it down) there are 2 boxes with 0 in. one orange one blue. the orange one is the master track volume and the blue one is the single preview volume(blue s). Below it is a "c", thats the pan. im not sure if thats even what you asked but hey! also, if your referring to the session view as live view, its the best part about ableton! hope this helps

    when in arrange view look to the bottom right to find the letters and hit "M" that is for mixer, i think that's what you want :)

    I recently picked up Ableton as well to use in conjunction with Logic. I found Olav Basoski's MacProVideo series on Ableton to be extremely helpful in getting me up to speed with regards to working with Ableton for producing tunes and generating ideas. I find Ableton's workflow to be quite inspiring.

    Cheers!
