I`ve used Digital Performer the past 2 years, any I`ve found it to be
fairly buggy. I swithched to Logic a couple of months ago, and it`s
soooo much better as far as reliability goes. 

On a usability level, I`d have to say that DP is *quite* OK, one u get
used to it, but it has a rather steep learing curve. Logic is somewhat
more intuitive, but it has too many pre-sets for my taste. It does give
you a bunch of preset sounds for different instruments, so its basically
just plug, play and record. 

One downside to Logic is that its really, really pricey, and u cant use
VST plugins. One biig benefit is that it will most likely work
flawlessly with any hardware. Altleast it did for me. I also kinda like
the tight integration with iTunes for easy exports and so forth.. 

Logic will also most likely cover any future needs u might have. it
really is quite a package. 

I tried Deck, but didnt really get into it, I though DP was better for
me at the time. 

I also use Peak a lot for basic editing of tracks. Its really quick and
easy to use for the basic stuff.

please have a look at Sound Studio ( It supports
recording and basic editing.
The export options are cool....
