Torque converter? Flexplate? Hm...

Hey guys. So I'm working on trying to diagnose the rattle from the trans area without actually tearing it apart. I've been having what I thought was torque converter noise for a few months now and was planning to ride it out until nice weather to change it but power seems to slowly be deteriorating lately. It's been making a nice low growl in neutral/reverse with my foot on the brake and frequently sporadic while driving. Foot on the brake in drive, the growl goes away. I haven't noticed regular slippage which makes me think the flexplate might be cracked but torque converter seems to be a realistic possible problem as well. Any had a similar experience with this?

Trans fluid is not burnt. I just changed it maybe 10k ago along with a filter.

No TC noise in park unless I'm on an incline.

Thanks guys
