I found out from the ASIO SDK that ASIO also exists for Mac OS, but I'm wondering if it is necessary and how common it is.
I have the Vestax VCM-100 with built-in soundcard (Maya44 USB actually) and all there is to download for Mac OS is an optional Control Panel to control in- and output volume and monitoring.
I tried it in djay and in Deckadance, and it worked very well. In Deckadance 256 samples buffer size were no problem, and routing from input to output worked perfectly.

If it works like this with other audio interfaces as well I wonder if there's need to support ASIO on Mac.

Also, since I was trying Deckadance, it looks like it uses a lot of CPU (105% in Idle, I assume >100% is possible because of the dual-core processor, and 100% is 100% of one core)
I certainly hope djDecks will be able to do a better job.

I don't have a single program that uses ASIO drivers on mac, and from everything I've heard or read, core audio is superior anyway. I'm no expert, but I don't see why you'd need it.

Not really in topic, but to nicely monitor the cpu, hd and ram i ´d advise menu meters:
