I just brought a new set of strings, and like every time, if I do a slide, that high pinch sound comes also =P

Any way to avoid this?

I know this issue eventually disappears after some use... but in my experience, it takes like 2 weeks.

Buy flatwound strings.

edit: A noise gate wouldn't be a good idea, it might get rid of that sound but you'd have to set it very high to do that and it would ruin any sustain :/ It would be a stupidly gated sound

Im assuming this is an acoustic, as in my experience that scratchy sound occurs most on acoustic strings. You'll just need to adopt a technique where you lift your fingers just a bit more off of the strings as you play so that when you move from one chord/note to the next, the scratchy slidey sound doesnt occur.

just play the strings, like everyone else, if you play a few hours a day in 3 or 4 days the slide sound will dissappear

You can avoid it by... lifting your fingers.

Maybe finds some strings that are not so bright? Like DR's or Elixar's

Or use Fast Fret, if they still even make that.

Flatwounds will change your tone (warmer/duller). Which may not be desirable.

This is true , also a lot of people seem to dislike how they feel, i prefer them though but if you want 'twang' in your sound then you'd probably just have to put up with abit of string noise and use regular strings
