Is there an application for Ubuntu that can play audio faster but maintain its pitch?

This is possible in Windows using an application like PowerDVD.

Playitslowly Install playitslowly

There is PlayitSlowly, intended to do this (among others things). You can also save a sound file with altered speed or pitch.

enter image description here

Install via the software center

Thank you,this answers my question. At the same time I found another solution, that works pretty well. VLC is capable of doing what I asked for when activating the "scale audio tempo in sync with playback rate" filter which can be found under advanced options. CU –  YSN Mar 10 '11 at 12:50

VLC is capable of keeping the pitch as well when activating the "scale audio tempo in sync with playback rate" filter which can be found under advanced options.
