That's like saying a phonograph is for DJing. Sure, you can use it for that, but if you think that's "what its for," then you just don't understand the software.

Well, you can, actually. Just turn off the warp button, and it will leave the audio unmanipulated. Then, if you wanted to, you could set up everything on individual tracks and then crossfade between then on an APC and what have you. Sure, it isn't an ideal use of Ableton, and you'd probably be much better off with Serato.... but you could do it.
