yeah heard some....
btw there are some old tricks
you can use almost accentuated silent screaming whisper technique
into the microphone(plus distortion and/or tube screamer pedal method)
then blast your mix volume in post
that is the workaround for bitchy neighbors/landlords
you don't need screaming at top of your lungs when recording
experiment with vocal composition
(yeah the actual screaming is more fun yet people bitching isn't)

Reaper is good and free-ish (ie endless unlimited trial period tho you are supposed to pay!)

I really like AudioMulch for computer noise, but it's $189. Try the trial anyway, I can't remember the limits it has. I also use PureData, which is free but VERY deep and can be imposing to get into. You can do pretty much anything with it though.

Not sure why you think there's a need to switch DAWs. Fl Studio is as good as anything else.

For under $100 budget I think the best choice is to invest in some inexpensive pedals. Fuzz and/or distortion first and foremost, this is something that plugins don't do well.

Alternatively, consider getting a cheap ass guitar or a midi controller if you don't already own one.

Another affordable option is Axoloti.

Other than that there are tons of free VSTs to explore.

Have you done anything with that? I keep meaning to get one to play with, but things and stuff and all.
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

Not yet, I plan to order one in a couple of weeks. Will report back once I get the unit.

i guess its more of a search for new vsts because certain setups can get old pretty fast

And here's some distortion/amp/etc software that's better than Hardcore:

Throwing some free cab IRs on top never hurts too.

Nothing wrong with FLStudio if you have a full copy already.

I can't see how you would make "better" noise by switching programs.

You just need to explore deeper with what you already have.



Plan B

Open a .pdf or .bmp file with Audacity and reap the rewards

Actually if you copy your swap file and open that it can be very interesting... as it has images of what youve been doing ..
dont forget .exe s as well...

read your version FL manual for figuring out recording/writing/editing "automation"...
...if you haven't already
look for anything else you may have missed previously in the manual
that should keep you entertained for very long time
plus dig into Audacity manual for doing post FL 2 track stereo editing/mastering
watch some youtube tutorials
way better(less of nightmare) than making yourself start over from almost scratch in LMMS
LMMS is not always the most intuitive/logical
Eye use some super archaic modular VST environment from Japan named Console
with my custom designed systems for midi/audio/sampling/fx
Image
Image
standalone application plus loads into DAWs as VST
for experimental/noise/whatever
http://www.console.jp/en/
use what works for you
don't constantly change your DAW unless looking for specifically/intentionally changing your sound
(do that say for instance composing Doom, Space Rock, Speed Metal, whatever that absolutely requires playing "real" instruments)
plus any new DAW is big timesink learning basics
so you better be well versed in it before just attempting hot swapping DAW

i never wanted to make my noise better, as im always satisfied with how it turns out. its just that my past methods have grown old and overused
