The Audio Portal is not just simply for sharing your music with the world, but is also a means to get constructive criticism from peers: people who make music themselves or are generally interested in your kind of music.
Constructive criticism from an artist always depend on his vision, taste and feel about all type of music.
There's so much of the same stuff on NewGrounds, it's very hard to actually get constructive criticism because it's the same shit over and over again.
I try as much as possible to provide constructive criticism, but I get tired of it 'cuz all I hear is the same shit over and over again. It's made by so many different people, too... and since that pretty huge amount of people seek for the same sound, they will not tend to look anywhere else for something else. Rarely.
And you can't provide constructive criticism if you don't know much about music. And I mean MUSIC (everything about music, as far as you can go). If people seek for the same sound all the time, it certainly creates a limitation. They can't walk on a different landscape if they don't try to get out of the same, safe path they're following. You have to go into the deep forest and discover your landscapes through different exits, and that's not always the "safe way". That adventure has to speak through your music, and that will certainly create a different sound (naturally).
Unfortunately, after all those years I'm on NewGrounds, I didn't find much of that... so you can't really expect much constructive criticism, sadly.
Yet, I try my best to provide it.
