Why not VLC? It can use Jack output and it can change pitch and playback
speed in realtime.
If you are a programmer, exists a good API (libvlc) with also a python
binding. In this days I'm trying to use it with wxpython to build a
custom player to play audio and video guitar lessons, with the feature
to handle markers to access quickly to a particular position of the
lesson. It seems to work well :)
