I'm sure I'm not the first guy to think of this, but Pitbull & Ke$ha's "Timber" are just begging to be custom mixed back and forth with the Rednex's "Cotton Eye Joe".

I've edited sound before; on something as sophisticated as Cuebase and on something as easy to use as Gold-Wave.

I'm only interested in swapping out sections of one for the other, not anything fancy like long beat overlays or dropping out instrument tracks or anything like that.

Any suggestions?

wuz here when it was Red.
GoldWave for the really simple stuff..
Ableton Live for the super complicated (It came with my m-audio expensive soundcard so I started using it and just stuck with it..)

I find myself doing a lot of stuff with VDJ, preplanning what I want to do, and then just recording it 'live' on my desktop..
IE: I might make a beat or loop with Ableton, use Gold wave to make a snippet of something, and then import everything into VDJ and produce it 'live'..
(if I was better at Ableton I could just do it all right there, but I'm not that great with it, no do I want to purchase anything more advanced)

Amateurs. I open my music files in a hex editor and manipulate the song at the byte level. :D

Kidding aside, I've used Audacity and Adobe Audition to do song edits. For quick edits, I favor Audacity. Longer mixes, Audition.

I have been using Magix Music Maker for years. I have 2013 now. Great for any mix. I have mixes of 5 to six songs in a row.

Jodi, I just listened to the mix you found on Sound cloud, I would say it's a little more than just a little off, I would consider it a train wreck. Just my opinion though.

Couldn't one just set multiple cue points on each song at the mix points and then pan the crossfader on the fly using Virtual DJ?

If you want to do this on a PC, then save the results as a MP3, Mixmeister Studio just may to the trick.
