    OK... with "relatively decent" I don't mean that it can do what the dedicated score editors can do only that it's relatively decent given that it is *not* a dedicated score editor. Logic's score editor is IMO a good example of a relatively decent score editor inside a DAW.

    Check out overture 5 (which by the way needs to be added to the list, - and just for clarification; no affiliation)

    Well, if I have a big session I do use Finale, but Digital Performer's transcriptions are actually amazingly good. Their software is uncanny in its ability to guess whether you wanted, say, staccato eighth notes or 16ths separated by rests; or septuplets or whatever.

    I have two screens and most of the time DP's notation window is open on the right.

    I have no idea if there's another DAW that does as good a job, though.

    OK, guys - thanks for voting, everybody. 658 votes ain't bad! The poll closes in an hour. I plan to start a new one later, with an updated list of DAWs (unless, of course, someone else has done it already).

    Somewhere
    Some features have been added to LPX since this poll started so I wonder if that would have skewed things...namely the new articulation selector.

    Indeed. It’s rhythmic transcription is the best of any DAW I’ve worked with. Logic is a close second. Cubase is way down at the bottom. I never use its notation as it’s a mess, at least to me.
