Yes, Audacity is a good suggestion.

So long as when your engineer says "very rough cuts" he does indeed mean "very rough cuts". Because editing audio like that is a skill in itself, one that I'm OK at, but not brilliant at. Logic and Garageband have tools that make comping takes together easier, but I'm still amazed whenever I see a proper studio engineer doing it seamlessly in about 10 seconds. I would be capable of supplying an engineer with "very rough cuts" but I know what I'm doing; I wouldn't be able (and wouldn't want to) supply him with anything pretending to be a great job at that.
