I've been making music for a while, but I'm looking for a good audio community of people who makes music too. Currently, I'm a member of 3 and have been for more than a year now.
1. - Soundcloud
It looked very promising but 99% of the time I do not get feedback at all.
2. - 8bc.org
This is for chip tunes, but pretty much the same thing as SoundCloud. Also, major popularity contest.
3.- Newgrounds audio portal
Newgrounds, I think, pisses me off more than anything. I'll take my time creating something nice, and then a few days into the voting and it'll topple inbetween 1.00 to 3.00
The only music that doesn't usually are my techno pieces or ambient material. I feel that Newgrounds audio browsers are biased against anything that doesn't have a dance beat or synth.
Now, I can take criticism, but that's the problem. I don't get any.
I feel like I'm struggling with popularity contests. And I probably am. I've listened to high-scoring material and I'm not going to lie, some of it is really good and they deserve the attention they get. However, other-times I wonder "who likes this?" And apparently the answer is a lot of people.
I'm not unconfident that my music is bad, I make successful music for my paid clients, but I'm aware that when I'm not making paid music, I just like to write to write and not everyone in the world will always enjoy it.
Basically, I just want honest feedback from a community. And if there is a ranking system, at least one where people don't normally vote "0" or anything because it's not like their favorite band, LMFAO.
Any suggestions? I appreciate it.

"Well, you're not alone.
There's a club for people like that. It's called Everybody and we meet at the bar."

This might seem rather obvious but...
Do you criticize their pieces?
