Ableton Live. Working with audio in Live is so fucking simple. You drag-n-drop, cut, paste, copy and you're done. The audio clip snaps to the grid, you highlight the part you want, position it, duplicate, loop, stretch, mix and process it all with the same ease as formatting a text document. I can do a seamless edit or mashup in under 5 mins. You won't find a better tool for this purpose.

Nicolas S:DAW / Audacity

Don't even bother trying it with Audacity. You can do it (and I know because I have) but it's so tedious and time consuming. Since it doesn't have a grid, you have to do all the work at a range close enough to see the individual samples, so you're constantly zooming all the way in and all the way out. Furthermore, you can't process anything in real-time, so there's a lot of trial and error to get it right. Nor can you sync the tempo of different tracks (unless you use the "Change Speed" option, and even then you have to know the original tempo of both tracks before reprocessing one to match the other).

Like I said, you could do it, but don't bother. Get the free 30 day demo of Live from the Ableton website and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm also looking for another solution than Audacity. It's a neat, free editing tool yet it really lacks a lot of features and sometimes can be quite a hassle to use. Gotta try out Mixmeister and Ableton Live, I think.

Cubase here.. (basically because I produce with it as well).
Imo, just as easy as Ableton Live.

Virtual DJ :)
And btw, if u have in head the main idea of mash up, than it's even possible to make it in Adobe Audition. I remember I was making one mashup which still is great one. Had lots of work in Audition, cutted lots of stuff, but was happy with the result :)
i see you with my x-ray
