Platform that can go tick by tick through historical data

I'm looking for a platform that can scan through data at a tick by tick rate.

For example, I use three charts while trading, 73 tick, 133 tick, and 233 tick.

My usual testing way is to set the cursor to global and go through the 73 tick chart so I can see what happened at the end of the 73 and in general what happened at the other 2 time charts. This works ok for testing, but the problem here is that they are not synced completely and you can sometimes see past your point at the 73 tick bar ending on the 133 and 233 tick charts.

Is there something that I could scan through at 73 ticks per click and that would fill all 3 charts accordingly and accurately?

I currently use tradestation for my testing/trading(which has the above mentioned issue)
Also I have been using the Ninjatrader 7 beta w/ the market replay data(which has been quite useful, but the only way to scan through the data is with time points and time speed, which slows down my testing alot)

Also, if this is not available on any current platforms, does anyone know if this would be possible to program or hire a programmer to do?

Any info would be greatly appreciated
