It's a piece of code that I use(d) for various sound experiments.
After being partly merged into openmovieeditor it got lost in some
drawer..  but it can do 'scrubbing' and I just rolled a new release.

  jplay2 -t -s -S 4800 <sound-file>

You can specify the scrub-loop-length in samples
(-S 4800 is 0.1s @ 48000)

With "-t" it plays sync to jack-transport. So you use qjackctl,
gjacktransport or even ardour, etc to control the play position and
play/pause the transport.

If you're looking for a graphical interface - try openmovieeditor with
JACK support. However the scrub-length there is not configurable.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
