For writing audio CD's, you'll need either Adaptec Toast (which can do more
than just audio), or Adaptec Jam (which only does audio).. Last I heard,
Adaptec were going to incorporate these two products into one piece of
software, but I don't think it's happened yet..
For manipulating audio, there's a few choices, but I use Bias Peak
(http://www.bias-inc.com/) and Spark XL (http://www.tcworks.de), which are
great for single track stereo manipulation.. I use them to record audio
input from my turntables and add fade's, remove hiss/snap/crackle/pop, and
add markers to LP's to give them individual track id's.. If you want
something more powerful, for multi track recording and such, you could
always use Logic Audio Platinum, or CuBase, but they're quite expensive, and
at least for what I'm doing, overkill.
As far as actually mixing two audio tracks together on your computer,
matching beats and such, I really have no idea how to do that.. If you do
find out, let me know.. I've heard of some programs for PC which supposedly
allow you to do that, but I don't know the details (if anyone knows much
about this, please clue me in, cause I've got a PC as well and wouldn't mind
being able to mix audio tracks together on the computer, at least until I
get a CD mixer).
