There are (at least) two good free digital audio editors available, if you would like to level your sound, cut sections, do basic mixing of audio etc.

Audacity os a free digital audio editor and recording computer software
You can download Audicty at http://www.audacityteam.org/

You can find a basic beginner’s guide here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCisC3sHneM
Here is a video about mixing music with voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvewOooeGyI

The other app I want to highlight is Levelator

Levelator is a free software app that makes adjustments to audio.  Though they have stopped development of this software in 2012, it is still one of the best pieces of software out there that allows you to make adjustments to your audio in terms of loudness (you can level different soundbits so they have similar volumes).

You can download Levelator at http://www.conversationsnetwork.org/levelator
