Alternative playlist of my tracks for editing?

ok, a Audio editing question. is there anything that will let me have a Alternative playlist of my tracks, like pro tools has playlists? I often mix live concert type recordings that use a lot of edits, often remove noise & junk. time well spent with a crowded stage and lots of tracks/open mics. before I made any edits I got in a good habit of select everything and making a 'safety' playlist as a form of a back up. so if I start making big edit cuts on, say the toms to 'hand gate' them, if I ever got in trouble with moving things around or wanted to start over if i nudged a region on accident - I could go to my safety playlist and everything was restored. this way I found myself not having to lock things down as much during the editing and 'clean up' of dropping noise floors. I hand gate a lot because it's then easier for me to use the result to sample replace against the hits I want afterwards if needs be. I want to do this in logic 8. been trying to use the 'folder takes' but it seems better for coping multiple takes than lots of edits. It seems like if i try this way every edit had a track. thats;s to much screen real-estate for me to have to work with. any ideas that could help. I love how the tempo ,marker & signature tracks have alternatives. do the audio tracks have the same? thanks people! AmerikiwisReply
