I think you are on the right track acknowledging that noise floor is present in all components in the signal chain.

to minimize noise floor you want optimal gain structure.

your Scarlette 18i20 3rd gen has 5 VU meter lights.

What are they doing when you talk into the mic.
How is the mic gain set on the Ableton input?
what are the input meters there doing?

maybe there is a different problem causing the noise, but first optimize your gain structure

I’ve just bought a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface

Assumed that the M1 would be fully supported by now and was horrified to find that it’s completely useless. Do I send it back to Amazon now and find an alternative? If the beta version of ‘Control’ doesn’t even support M1 chips have I just bought a turkey interface.

Any similar alternatives I could look into which have managed to make their software compatible with the biggest home computer OS yet??
