Play through each track in a playlist at your set interval

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This applet plays each track in the selected iTunes playlist for a set time interval optionally starting at a set number of seconds into each track, beginning with the selected track. Handy for 'scoping playlists.

Needle Drop will work best on tracks that have local files. Un-cached tracks streamed from the cloud may upset timing while audio is being downloaded.

For best results clear the Up Next list before engaging.

Also see Audition End.
