If you create all your scenes in one group, (if you use more groups this does not work properly) you could use a midi command to change to next scene using tools, shortcuts, expand the live box, add midi comand. So possibly use footpedals or a cheapo drum midi pad.
you can create scenes with many steps (chases) and activate with sound or time slider. the tap for bpm function might be another option, I think this works on the latest version of the software, not tried it myself.
