I have complited a little list of mix programs.I’ve added links where you can download the program for free
Creating your unique audio mixes can turn out to be extremely exciting, especially if you don’t need to spend even a penny. Some folks believe nothing good comes free of cost; but it is simply not true. So, let’s take a look at the top 10 free music mixing programs.
The UltraMixer is a premium audio mixing program, but it is also available as a free edition. This music mixing program allows you to combine several audio formats right from MP3, WMA down to WAV, OGG, and CDs, and even playing them real time.

OpenSebJ is yet another freebie to take care of all your audio mixing needs. This is handy mixing software for those who wish to mix too many tracks at a time. OpenSebj can load as many as 255 audio samples, though it takes only .wav music files as input.You can do a lot with OpenSebj such as panning, volume control, changing the frequency of music files.
Here’s the download link http://sourceforge.net/projects/opensebj/files/
Tactile is a compact yet powerhouse music mixing program. Just like most of the professional mixers, it comes with an interactive user interface showing up a couple of turntables featuring a number of controls right from manipulating the speed of tracks, down to changing frequencies, and sound levels of individual tracks.

Audacity is one of the proven audio mixing software packages available in the market. One of the good things about Audacity is the sheer fact that even the beginner level users can use it with great ease without really knowing much about audio mixing. However, it is also used extensively for professional music mixing purposes.
When it comes to manipulating things with Audacity, user controls are pretty easy and incorporating effects like fading in/out, volume equalization, mixing multiple tracks, is simply a cakewalk.

For the price, this software offers a great set of features and is perfect for basic home use.

Great to have this thread. Good job thread admins. Already some valuable suggestions added!
I personally use wavepad sound editor software for mixing. It is a freeware and lets you record and edit music, voice and other audio recordings. When editing audio files, you can cut, copy and paste parts of music/recordings, and then add effects like echo, amplification, reverb and noise reduction.
It is a very basic and friendly software and will serve all your basic ringtoning needs.August 26, 2013 at 7:06 am #18749August 26, 2013 at 1:35 pm #18981
Awesome start Vansis
Great tips Saurabh and PrakharAugust 26, 2013 at 3:04 pm #19012
I personally use Audacity, it’s a really easy and friendly user software.
Before knowing all the technical parts of mixing is very important to know some basics as which tracks or track i pick.
For beginners that want to start making some tunes the best thing is to cut one part of the song on 30 seconds (29.980 seconds), here some tips:
Try to find a good start- Means, not in middle of the sentence of the song, try to find a spot with ‘low’ sound :
1. Press the “Selection Tool” button on the upper part and point where you think its the best start, every time you’ll click you’ll get another spot:
2. To select the part you want, hover near the line that is your start point till you get like a pointing hand and drag to the right side, you can see on the bottom how many seconds you are choosing. Check the “Length” box, if it’s not checked:
**Note: You can always arrange it again while your cursor is in pointing mode and from each sides. Be aware, if you click when its not in pointing mode the selection will disappear and you’ll see only the start selection again.
3. Now export the track (if its bigger than 30s don’t worry you can trim it in a new project area), click on the top menu: File -> Export Selection. Of course save it as mp3.
4. Open a new “Project”, You can from: File -> New.
5. Import the file, you can in 2 ways:
*from menu: File -> Import -> Audio
*just drag the file to the project (which I do mostly)
6. Adjusting the tune.
If your part is bigger than 30s you can in the new project make it shorter, just select the part/s that are too much (from the start or the end, what you think the best) and press Delete. You can always use the zoom in and zoom out button on the upper right side (they look like spectacles with + and – ), to be more precise.
It’s nicer to hear the tune starting from a low sound and then ending with a low sound, that’s why there’s the fade in and fade out tools.
Fade in is for the start: Select approximately 3s-5s from the start of the mix then go to the menu: Effects -> Fade In. You’ll see how the start became pointy. You do the same to the end, select and then: Effects -> Fade Out.
* You can always Undo your actions if you aren’t satisfied with the Undo tool and correct yourself.
7. Export, (this time you don’t choose selection) : File -> Export
Have fun making tunes!!!
Soon will be more complex mixing tutorials, if you have any questions or need more clarifications feel free to ask
