    I'm trying to make an aerobic track and want an easy program to adjust the beats per minute at the end of one song to make it flow smoothly into the start of the next song.

    Garage Band only adjusts the full song, I haven't been able to get Audacity to work, and I just want something affordable and user-friendly. Suggestions?

    Most DAW have a feature where you can specify the tempo throughout a song. I have logic express and that does a great job.

    Garageband allows you to fit an automation curve for the tempo of the song, which should do what you need.

    If your audio file is orange, convert it to a purple track by pressing Ctrl+Alt G and then clicking on the track.

    You then need to check "Follow Tempo & Pitch" which you find by clicking the scissors icon with your audio track selected.

    The from the menu choose Track; Show Master Track. Then on the master track choose Master Tempo, and then you can click on the tempo line and drag it up or down to adjust the tempo at any point in the song.
