I use Snd for that purpose. I recently transcribed Charlie Christian's
"Solo Flight" by cutting and looping parts until I got them right. Oh,
and Snd also has a neat feature that slows the loop down without
changing the pitch, very easy to use.
Snd will load MP3s but converts them automagically. It will not save a
file as an MP3 though.
I'm sure some of the other soundfile editors do these tricks, but Snd
is the one I use.
