Best software to create uptempo workout mixes

Hi, my girlfriend and myself love to go running to dance/techno/trance music. For years I have been using Mixmeister to make mp3 mixes at around 155-165 BPM. The mixes can be from 30 minute mixes of 20 songs to 2 hour mixes og 50 songs. The Mixmeister software is however getting old and does not always analyze the beat correctly so I started looking for something better. I actually bought Mixedinkeys mashup software but that is even more Limited and cumbersome so i have asked for a refund on that. Also none of theese gives me the ability to adjust the beatmapping if they analyze the song incorrectly. Running to Music brutally reveals any errors in the beatmatching...

What I basically need is to be able to:

Lay out mp3 tracks on a timeline,
I dont need more than 2-4 parallell tracks.
Set intro / outro Points, crossfade volume and/or bass/treble
Adjust BPM and beatmatch the songs
Cut/copy/paste sections and arrange as I see fit
Export to mp3

What would be exiting in addition - but not necessary would be to be able to add sound effects, create drum beats etc.

I dont mind spending up to 100usd for New software. I dont have any other gear than my computer and my mp3 player

Currently i'm considering ableton live basic Version. I dont mind investing time in Learning New software

Any tips are most wellcome
