Wow heya Matthew,
I haven't seen a post from you in ages man. Good to see you're still around. You haven't posted any new tunes though.
You always had good little piano snippets.
Anyway I recommend the focusrite series. They have low latency drivers, it's portable, small, and has killer pre amps if you ever need to live record anything. Phantom power for mics too.
I know of at least one other person on this forum using the focusrite stuff. Check it out.

That could be a number of things man. I wouldn't take it too hard. Sometimes people have a listen but don't know what to post as a comment. There are other factors too. If you're wanting more people to listen to your stuff then there are a number of suggestions I can give. First off being seen gives familiarity to your name. Basically saying your music isn't the only thing drawing people in. A fair amount of music is promoting. There was a really good soundcloud 101 article that can be applied to lots of situations and scenarios. Well worth the read.
For instance before I posted my first track on this site I had posted something like 100 comments. Just helping people out and giving feedback on their tunes. When I posted that first track people responded to it. People saw the name and said "hey that guy posted on one of my tunes. maybe I'll check out his track". Getting your name out in a community is a nonstop action. People are coming and going all the time if they don't get the reaction they were hoping for (i.e. there are a ton of people who come in...post one track without making themselves known...expect people to listen...leave when people don't listen). That's not what you did obviously. I'm just giving an example. All in all you need to find a way to rise above the white noise of new artists to be heard.
Another thing like you said is that this isn't a normal kinda sound around here. I like pretty much all types of music so long as it has a decent structure. So I'll pretty much listen to any track people submit. All in all though a good 90% or so of the music here is some form of Dance style music. Your optimum target audience may not be here. Another option is if you'd like some guaranteed feedback and criticisms is to hit up the pro membership. There is a new "pro member music feedback" section that just got started specifically for this purpose.
Anyway all in all what I'm trying to say here is "this is what you make of it". If you want to get your music heard then you need to create familiarity with you and your name/image. You need to market yourself and your ideals. The name you have chosen even has to do with your image and how people see you. I don't know the story behind it but it may not be helping you get fans. Stereotypes still happen. I was expecting you'd be writing something more like dubstep but was pleasantly surprised.
Getting into the music industry is hard work. No free lunches and all that. I hope that helps. Not trying to be a downer or anything. Just pointing out some things you may or may not have seen.
