I have cool, and sound forge.

I was thinking from this perspective.

I've laced a beat - its not final, and I've got someone who wants to spit over it.
So I send them what I have and they send back some rhymes over it.
I can tweak the track behind to insert things in between verses or whatever.

Thinking of it like this i'd like to be able to see the tracks above one another - and be able to edit the vocal track to extend / decrease pauses, and tweak the volume etc

Is cool edit able to do this?
(i'm used to sound forge)

the easiest way + a accurate way is too record your vocals on sound recorder (go to start>programs>accesories>entertainment>soundrecorder      and your there

u just press record, rap it, then mix the beat in...very easy..thats what i do

Thats what I'm talking about *i know exactly how to create the acapella in the first place* - its mixing it with the track behind - properly, being able to shift the vocals about to match beats etc

well i mean,
depending on the flow of lyrics  i'd want to move things around so the song better fits the lyrics, and add things like effects to emphasie whats being said.

i've decided since i wrote this post i think i'd have each verse (and the chorus) as seperate samples and treat them as such within the song

YO!

 I'm Your Man For This One, I've Done SEVERAL Remixes, With Acapellas.  IF The Emcee Uses The Same Beat That You're Gonna Use, It's Easy, Because The Timing Will Be Perfect.  What You Want To Do Is Get Cool Edit PRO, Not Just Cool Edit 2000, Because Pro Has Multi-Tracking.  You Pull It Up, And It Has 64 Channels, And You Can See EAch Audio Wave On Each Channel.  One Channel Can Have Lead Vocals, One Channel Can Have The Beat.  One Channel Can Have Maybe Some Drums You Added, It's Awesome.

Another One That Would Work Is Cakewalk.  It's The Same Thing.

Since You Can See The Different Audio Waves, You CAn Cut, Stretch, Push, Loop, Delete, Mute, Whatever The Hell You Want, It's Amazing, Actually.

Ask B-pLeAsE, He's Heard Some Shit I've Done, It's Nice.

Using Sound Recorder Works, But It's Shitty Quality, And You Can't Go Back And Change Anything.

Using Cool Edit Or Cakewalk Will Be The Closest Thing To Having Complete Control, Just Like They Do In The Studios.

Ahhh the Pro version ;)

Sounds like what I need.

I think splitting the acapella into samples up into sections and triggering them on beat would give absolutely perfect timing.

I'll see how I get on once my production is up to speed.
