Using a DAW to make Musescore scores sound better
I've been using Musescore for a while now and have been making music for orchestras and bands alike, but I've run into the problem (I think other people are having) that my scores sound like a computer. I've tried "humanizing" pieces with the TempoChanges plug-in and custom soundfonts, but to little to no avail. I want to take my scores a step further and improve the sound of my scores by moving the tracks into a digital audio workstation (DAW) but I'm not sure where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I will take all opinions into consideration.
(As a side note, I have tried composing in Finale, but I prefer Musescore's style of engraving because I feel it is more efficient. I know Musescore's reluctance to support VSTs (I.e. NotePerformer, Kontakt, etc.) within the program, so I'm looking elsewhere for better sound quality - namely within a DAW or similar.)
