I have a Ground Control Pro which has switches like the RS10.  I think
they are quite noisy.  Very, very rugged which some people like, but they
make a "swish" noise as they are pressed, and if you step hard they
make a "clank" when they reach the bottom, and again when they return
to the top.

I also have the Behringer which is almost silent by comparison.  Sometimes
I get a very soft "chirp" but it seems to be caused by tension on the case
rather than the switch.  The only thing I don't like about it is the size.

I have not used one but the Rocktron MidiMate looks like it has buttons
similar to those on the EDP foot controller:


It is smaller than the Behringer, but not as flexible in sending MIDI
