Dopamine is a chemical in the human body, which plays an important role in defining human behavior. It is a chemical released by the brain when we experience pleasure. And it is also released by our beloved brain when we enjoy music.

There are tones audio players, competing for the space on the market, there are hundreds of them free to the public. However, through this variety of the provided features and interface design attributes, there are software utilities, which are unique, cool, and attractive. Dopamine is one of the few players, having a special space in this group.

Dopamine’s main goal is make organizing and listening to music as simple and pretty as possible. It has no intention to replace existing full-featured audio players. Dopamine is for those that seek simplicity and functional eye-candy. It supports wav, mp3, ogg vorbis, flac, wma and m4a/aac.


System requirements

Windows 7, 8.x, 10
.NET Framework 4.5.1 or higher

Dopamine is a lightweight piece of software that allows you to play music from your local disk drive and find albums, artists or track that you want to listen to seamlessly.

The utility comes with an appealing interface that displays a list of songs, albums, genres, artists and playlists in alphabetical order. Therefore, if you want to listen to a song you have in your head, but you can only remember the name or artist vaguely, you can find the track by searching the lists at the corresponding letter.

While most of the UI is dedicated to music organization, the player is located in the lower section of the screen and comes with the basic play, forward, backward, pause, loop and stop options. It is necessary to mention that you can minimize the interface so that you can only view the track that is currently playing.

The highlight of the application stems from the multiple methods it displays the data. In fact, it includes a separate tab for all metadata information, a feature that can come in handy when you are searching for a particular artist or song.

On the other hand, the application could use a few editing options that would permit you to equalize the sound, CD ripping for the basic video formats or have plugin support. In addition, it would be nice if the program permitted you to synchronize your music with your mobile device, let you subscribe to podcasts or find and download new artists, albums and music.
