Putting the pieces together for a live show for solo producer/vocalist

Hey all,

This has been my go to place for self recording know how for sometime but I've never posted. That time has come my friends!

I have finally drafted up what I would want my live show to look like, I've primarily just been jamming with bands or playing the instrumentals via DJ. But its hard to keep a band together and I want something more interactive than just singin' with a turn table.

I want to be able to have my tracks lined up on Ableton live while also being able to switch between the various vocal/beat effects using a controller. I also want the sound quality to be just as good as my recordings while adding that improvisational live flair.
What gear would I need to make this happen, and also what would be decently cost efficient?

Some examples of what I was thinking was the Kanye West VMA 2010 performance where it was basically him and a controller. Another is these folks here Sylvan Esso: SYLVAN ESSO, "COFFEE" Live at the Wilderness Bureau on Vimeo

Thanks folks!

Ableton is basically THE go-to application for this type of production. There are a large variety of controllers out there that can map to software commands in different ways, that bit comes down to personal preference.
