Recording software

PUMPED. Just got a macbook and I have like 4 albums of black metal influenced shoe gaze written. Just need to begin recording. I'm getting my tax return back soon. Friends I know use Logic Pro and whatnot...I have Protools SE and it blows imo. What's not so expensive but easy to use and good recording software you recommend I purchase?

Keep in mind...it's ultimately black metal. It doesn't need to sound amazing...at all. But also I don't want it to sound like absolute garbage.

Reaper. It's about $60 but you can download a trial that never expires. Plus, it is highly customizable and people have presets that make it function like other DAWs.

label thief is an unknown quantity at this point
logic is the best, but reaper will do if you dont want to spend the money/download a buggy shitty copy.

Using an M-Audio Pre to record for Reaper but I can't figure out a way to hear my playback when I record something. I'm such a fucking noob when it comes to this shit.
