I have a Helix Floor and the touch sensitivity is one function of the switches and work like any other soft touch footswitch. As i understand it, they work by runnig a small current through each switch, not unlike touching your guitar strings to get rid of the hum.This next Fimrware update it will be able to assign it to different parameters as needed

I use the Relay Bypass on my H9 and it clicks when I touch my iPad screen, which is not loud. Mechanical sounds are part of mechanical things. The guitarist changing amp channels had a really loud footswitch which may seem like a small problem but if it could be mitigated, it would be worth it. I thought I found a way to do that but actually misunderstood the technology behind it, a somewhat common occurance.
