You can speed playback in Premiere easily. You can use the JKL key system ... L is play, K is stop, J is play in reverse ... for going faster or slowing down.
Hit L to start playback ... hit L again, you double speed the playback. Hit L again ... rinse & repeat.
Hit J during accelerated playback, it slows it one 'level'. And this all works in reverse in J 'mode'.
Plus you can set keyboard shorts to change to a lesser increment than double.
