I believe that there are a bunch of free ones, too, some open source ones seem to be strong too, which is good to see. https://ardour.org/ would be an example. Apparently audacity can handle vsts too, so it should work too, it's just not a common workflow i guess.

Ardour may interest you if you change your mind on learning a new DAW.
[Question] Can we get a megathread for open source tweaks?

That's not the point, people sell compiled builds of their open source software too. It's that the code being open source is important, because tweaks usually get root access of the phone.
PipeWire: The Linux audio/video bus

Setups for professional music production. This usually requires JACK (https://jackaudio.org/) as audio server, which allows synchronizing and connecting multiple applications.
For example, you can have Ardour (https://ardour.org/) as DAW, but use another application like Hydrogen (http://hydrogen-music.org/) for creating drum samples. JACK connects the two applications using a virtual patchbay that allows using Hydrogen as an Input for Ardour. Essentially any application can be an input and/or an output.
JACK also provides synchronization using a "master clock", so that Hydrogen starts playing as soon as you hit the "record" button in Ardour.
Many people also use a Linux kernel optimized for low latency audio.
With PulseAudio, these things are not possible. On the other hand, consumer applications like web browsers don't usually offer direct JACK support. So bridging is necessary, by using PulseAudio as a JACK input.

Free software is like free speech, and freeware is like free beer. Ardour is a great example of free software. It's not really "free," because the ready to run software costs money, but you are able to view the source code and see how the software works, share the code with your friends, and change the code and then share it with your friends (as long as people can have these same freedoms with your redistributed software).

Ardour is pretty great too, if you want a FOSS DAW. Like, surprisingly feature rich and no less unusable than any other DAW I've worked with.
What free things are available on the internet that everyone should take advantage of?
