Scores & production: Cubase 12 vs?

Hi there,

I would appreciate your comments and thoughts on an optimal choice for a composer who needs a DAW (on Windows) to finalize their projects that are started in Dorico (or similar notation software).

The most valuable features of this DAW will be:
a) an excellent compatibility with Kontakt, IK Multimedia (Miroslav), and E&W Play engines/VSTi-s,
b) an integrated score editor,
c) an excellent compatibility with various expression maps,
d) a user-friendly interface that makes inputting articulations and changing MIDI parameters a breeze.

How does Cubase 12 compare with numerous other DAWs on the market in terms of the criteria above?
I would especially like to hear from those who are currently switching from another DAW to Cubase 12, or have recently done so.

Either Cubase or Studio One.

Studio One has better and more intuitive expression map / articulation management though. Otherwise they both do what you need.
