1. This is our favorite part. 

See the orange line on the track?  This is how you edit the volume of the track -- every time you click on that line, it adds a new "control point."  When the point is at 100%, the volume is loud. When it's at zero, it is silent:

Remove control points by Option-Clicking on the Mac, or right-clicking on Windows.

 

2. You can mix between your tracks just by editing volume "control points":

 

3. Click the "Solo" button to make one track play at a time.  It makes it easier to control points without distraction from other audio tracks:

 

4. Mashup gives you the ability to edit High, Mid and Low EQs.  Editing the "High" will lower the volume of hihats from your track.  Editing the "Mid" will lower vocals.  "Low" will remove the bass and the drums.  Switch to EQ editing by clicking on the "Volume Envelope" selector:

You have precise control over EQ automation.

 

5. Another tip:  After you make a selection in the audio wave, hit the "delete" button.  It will mute your selection.  Useful if you want to trim the end of your project.  Mashup looks at the last part that has audio, and doesn't export anything after that.

 

6. Click "Save Mashup To New File."  Your results are saved to a pristine-quality MP3.  Share with your friends, upload to Facebook, and DJ with it.  Enjoy!  That's all there is to it.
