5. AppleScript for iTunes > 88. Rewind or Pause the Current Track

Rewind or Pause the Current Track

Rewind the currently playing track a specified number of seconds and then play, or pause the track.

If you use your iPod for recording and transcribing speeches, lectures, or meetings, you’ll appreciate this hack. Import the recording into iTunes, and you can use this script to alternately rewind the current track a specified amount and pause it, making transcription a lot easier.

The Code

The script applet stays running until its reopen handler is called by clicking its icon in the Dock. When the reopenhandler is called, it alternates between two actions: rewind the currently playing track seven seconds and then play it, and pause the currently playing track.
