Looking for an MP3 player where I can set intervals according an exercise strategy called Tabata. You can read a bit about it here.

I would like software, MP3 player, where I can upload/play my music and be able to set intervals of when the music is playing loud and when it is several decibels lower.
This will be like a standard MP3 player with a few added features. I also want a very flashy looking skin.
First I would like the ability to upload multiple songs or more preferably, drag and drop like ITunes etc.
After I upload my favorite music I want there to be 5 settings.
Warm up, Workout, Rest, Interval, Warm down
Warm up = typically 5 minutes. Want to be able to set this to whatever I want.
Workout = the time I am exercising. I want to be able to set it to whatever I want time frame wise.
Rest = same thing. If I want to rest for 10 seconds or 10 minutes, I want to be able to set that to whatever I want
Interval = how many times the workout and rest repeat. For instance, if I want to workout for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and repeat this 8 times, that would be 8 intervals. An interval is one workout and one rest.
Warm Down = same as warm up.
Second function that is important is a record function. I would like to be able to record the session so I can upload it to my IPod.
For example, if I want to warm up for 5 minutes, work out for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and during that 20 minutes of working out, i want 60 second intervals of hard work, 30 seconds of easy work, the player would record the music for 60 seconds at a regular volume, then when the 30 seconds comes up, the volume will drop down significantly notifying me its time to rest..
This will be software to install on PCs, laptops, etc.. Win7, XP, Vista, and Mac if possible.
If you have other questions feel free to ask.
