Most people I know including myself use DP.
Live is another alternative, which seems to work well for many.

You should definitely check out www.ableton.com and download a demo of Live 4. Its a performance based non linear seqeuncer. Its really easy to set up clips and assign controlers to do all sorts of things, you could even sync Live to the drummer if you bought one of the sync boxes from www.redsound.com. The box you would need is the Voyager or the microsync.

I havent synced Live to a drummer with one of those boxes, but I have a Voyager 1 and have synced Live to turntables without to much problems.

i use DP4. i do two mixes one has audio only the other has audio plus click. we balance the click to where the drummer likes it and send it to him. the house gets the first mix wich is fed to the stage monitors as well if needed. sense we do two mixes before hand we dont need a faster hard drive to play back the 4 channels plus a click and any midi. works like a charm. ive also found that its easiest to let the drummer control the laptop.
