Adjust iTunes Playback Speed With This AppleScript
I found this little AppleScript that opens the current song/movie/audio book in QuickTime where it sets a faster playback speed. The script saves current playback position and starts playing at the same position in QuickTime. There’s also an app for that! (below script)
tell application "iTunes" pause set my_track to location of current track set my_seconds to player position end tell tell application "QuickTime Player" activate open my_track set my_movie to first document set ts to duration of my_movie set current time of my_movie to my_seconds set rate of my_movie to 1.33 -- starts playing end tell
If you would rather have an app to control iTunes playback speed, there’s Speed-Up available for your Mac.
