For a MIDI keyboard I'm making I need buttons for underneath the keys - so I need buttons that require very little force to press, and that make (if possible) no sound. I've already searched eBay and other websites for suitable buttons, and the closest thing I found were miniature microswitches (with levers), but they were too expensive as I need 122 of them (2 for each key because I want the keys to be velocity sensitive).
In my box of many things I have found a button that would be ideal for the application, but I can't find these anywhere online! I think it's a limiter switch from a CD Drive.
Does anybody know how these switches are called, or where I can find these? I'd appreciate any help! (or alternative ideas of course!)
