Many DAWs/music production softwares (Reaper, FL Studio ...) rely on piano-roll to edit midi tracks.
Are there nice sequencers/daws with very good notation/score editor (along with VSTi/plugin support for rendering the score).
I know Cubase etc offer usable score editors. I'd prefer to work with the entire musical work as the score (as in Sibelius etc). I've used Harmony Assistant for sometime. Liked it very much. It has an internal sound synth, doesn't support vst plugins.
