I am looking for a music applications that integrates with my iTunes library and plays songs something like this:

Playing a song: SoundCloud screenshot 2

Screenshots from SoundCloud.

I really want to be able to play a song, see the waveform and be able to skip in the song. Is there such an application?

Have you seen Capo? I have the iPad version, and it does what you want. I assume the desktop version does the same.

I do like Capo, but it doesn't integrate with iTunes :-( See my new answer on this question. – daviesgeek Jun 9 '12 at 17:04

djay is what I was looking for. I really like it, as it integrates with your iTunes library, and auto-updates when you add new songs to your library. It has a visual waveform, as well as a vinyl representation of the song, which allows you to move a needle around on the record, skipping from place to place in the song.

It is $19.99 on the Mac app store, but it is packed with great features!

And I'll add that there's an awesome iPhone/iPad version that rocks!! – daviesgeek Feb 17 '13 at 23:40
