I use iDealshare VideoGo to add subtitles to MP4, it also helps to add subtitles to other video like AVI, MKV, WMV, MOV, VOB and etc.

It has both Mac version and Windows version.

It even has the feature of extract subtitles from video or removing subtitles from video

From an article on how to add music or audio track to video, I found the tool which can help you do the above task.

The tool can easily add MP3, WAV, AAC, M4A, WMA, AC3, MP2, AIFF, CAF, QCP, APE, FLAC, DTS, RA, OPUS and more to video like MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV, FLV, WMV, MXF, WebM, ASF, DV, MPG, RM, AVCHD, SWF, MOD, MTS, OGV, 3GP, etc.

Try it.
