    I'm looking for a piece of software (Mac Based) that will do basic things. I'd like to edit EXISTING audio tracks (mp3's). I don't need to create anything. In short, I'd like a program that will allow me to create my "mash-ups" of songs. Using the waveforms to cut portions of songs looping them or moving them around. And changing the BPM's is very important for mixing the songs together. Making a 98 BPM track 101 BPM's, preferebly with pitch adjusting as well. I used Cubase SE for this but there is no version for my Intel Mac Pro and I also just think that software wasn't really meant for that. Can you recommend something?

    I think what you are looking for is a program that will do time stretching. You want to look for "loop" based audio software. Abelton Live is one of the best in that category. Soundtrack Pro looks like it would work also

    You should be able to get the demo's to try them out.

    Some freebies might be worth a try:

    Thanks Casper,

    I've played with a few and was wondering if there are any that allows a visual time stretch. Something like dragging the waveform so the peaks (beats) line up with the track just above it. I think this would be easier then the methods I've seen. It took me numerous times to get the beats matched by changing the tempo/pitch a percentage and it still ends up off by the end of the song.

    In Sony Acid I was able to stretch one track and the other tracks seem to follow with the correct tempo and pitch. Is this what you are trying to do? Im sure that the abelton Live allows you to do real time time-stretch.
