I wanted to take a moment to talk to you — not as a faceless creator behind a website, but as someone who's deeply passionate about what this website aims to achieve.
The Hard Truth
I've put everything I've got into muted.io. My passion, my time, and my money.
As much as I love what I do, the reality is that I'm struggling. I've dipped into debt to keep this dream afloat. And, as much as it pains me to say it, I'm close to having to make the difficult choice of adding third-party ads to sustain the website.
A Small Favor
This is where I could really use your help. If you've found any value in muted.io, if it's helped you break down complex musical ideas or provided you with the tools to better your skills, would you consider making a small donation?
I'm asking for a one-time contribution of just $4 — or whatever you can manage.
Why $4? Because that's all it would take, really. If even 1.5% of visitors to the site were able to donate this small amount, it would keep muted.io not just surviving, but thriving.
It would give me the freedom to focus on bringing even more helpful content your way.

Why It's So Important
I know that life can be hard and that money is tight for many of us. But if you've ever gained something from muted.io, even if it's just a bit of knowledge or inspiration, consider giving back.
Your contribution isn't just a donation, it's a lifeline. It's a chance to keep this website alive and ad-free, for you and for others who will come after you.
If you believe in what I'm trying to do here, this is your chance to be a part of it.
Let's keep muted.io a clean, ad-free, and supportive space for everyone eager to learn about music.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for even considering this. If you're not able to donate, that's okay too — your support in any form is deeply appreciated.
- Seb, ✌️ + ❤️
