Dock Party overview

Dock Party turns your macOS Dock into a dynamic light bar that syncs with your music and brings your Dock to life in ways subtle or dramatic. Display track details and album art right beside the Dock. Control music playback with clickable controls that are always visible. Like songs. Or simply customize your Mac by giving your Dock a new tint with many colors, gradients, and animations to choose from.

Dock Party is a lightweight Spotify and Apple Music playback controller that offers a variety of ways to display album art, song details, and track progress for the currently playing track. Dock Party runs in the background as a menu bar status item that doesn’t take up any space in the Dock. It also features a unique audio visualizer that utilizes your Mac’s built-in microphone to turn the Dock itself into a dynamic show of color and rhythm in sync with your music (or any ambient sound). There are several visualizer modes to choose from and more will be included in future, free updates.

A key advantage of Dock Party is that the controls, track details, and visualizer are always visible — as long as the Dock itself is visible. (If you always keep your Dock hidden, this is probably not the app for you, although the menu bar options will still work just fine, if that’s your jam.) It doesn’t matter what app you’re working in; you can see what song is playing without a click or even a slide. The visualizer never gets hidden behind other windows, unlike those other guys! (Extensive testing has shown that music visualizers are less interesting when they’re not visible.)

Dock Party runs quietly and efficiently in the background with low impact on system resources. Preference options and other features can be accessed from the Menu Bar icon. Most interface elements can be turned on or off or customized.
