SDR Meets DJ Gear

Hi there! Some of you may know that I am quite busy with music, dance and the stuff concerned.
Some rare occasions have it, and hamradio mixes with music mixing, aka DJing. And here is one of those occasions:
The DJ Mouse
Basically, there is nothing special about this mouse, other than the regular scroll wheel is somewhat wider and parallel with a jog wheel. It is just this jog wheel that makes all the difference.
All SDR software solutions I am aware of, are using the scroll wheel for sweeping the frequency. I always felt that this was somewhat awkward. Now we got a mouse with a rotary encoder, just like a VFO knob.
Still I scratch my head what can be done with the "scratch" button...
