why doesn't the XDJ-AERO have a Jog wheel like the DDJ-SX? (Shape not size)

Why doesn't the XDJ-Aero have a Jog wheel like the DDJ-SX? (Shape not size) 

There the roughly in the same pricing bracket @ around £800 but hight & sturdiness on the DDj-Sx is far more user friendly

I don't care about the screen in the middle of the jog (it would of be nice but not important)

but you could of at lest give the AERO Jog Wheel more depth & Cog groove like feel (like most higher end CDJ's & Controllers you make)

as to make this device more user friendly. 

As these two devices must have been developed around the same time (judging on the short time between releases)

it doesn't make any sense why this wasn't done as standard, as the jog on the AERO seem like an after thought

Seeing as its one of the part thats use that the most it should be a standard high quality jog wheel not a

"lets see what we have in the store room laying around type jog"

I agree and feel completely ripped off by the Aero. Not only was the advert for the aero completely misleading by giving the impression you could call up stored cue points, it has now been reduced by £60 in the UK and a second Pioneer controller has been released with more professional jog wheels and a more 'professional' look and feel....

A disappointed customer....

Have you tried the Aero's Jogs Genx? They're solid, tight and user friendly, I'm certainly not disappointed with them and this is someone that has access to CDJ 2000s, no problem at all jumping between the 2.

Suppose one of the features of the Jog is that it's a Jog Drum, can see potential here if Pioneer bring out a firmware that allows you to create drum/snare/hat patterns like the RMX 1000, store them as samples and layer them back onto your tacks - will that happen, probably not!!!

Mc_lark: I feel the jog is quite thin, they needed to be deeper & have more definition like CDj's it the only thing that I would change physically the rest is extremely enjoyable,

I also have daily access to CDJ's 2000 & feel the only reason these jogs are like this is to noe hurt sales of the 2000's

I asked a major company that sells them in the UK to ask the Pioneer UK Rep about the Aero (on the phone while i was there) & he stated that the Aero wasn't a entry level piece of equipment & Pioneer have no plans on making a (Pro Version) of the Aero as its already is the pro version, so I think the updated firmwares in the future will reflect that (if what he says is true)

so your comment about the drum pad might even become a reality (possibly) like Wave form's & Hot Que's, finger crossed
