DJ Console for PowerSDR control

One main drawback I found while operating my homemade SDR-1000 clone is a number of keyboard and mouse manipulations, which has to be done for setting different modes. Well, in the beginning it was fun to use a mouse for radio control... But it is getting more and more annoying if you have several applications on top of each other on the same screen and you have to switch e.g between logbook and PowerSDR for adjusting filters or so. Would be better to have separate controls/tuning knobs for common used parameters, like in "old radios".
