Touch switches are easy to implement but can malfunction. I think Simonton used the same kind of CMOS touch switch you would see in a radio shack book. They usually rely upon AC hum to activate, so might not work well in a Faraday’s cage.
I had the old Oberheim OB-1 with touch switches. It worked very well. 
These days you only see them in things like lamps.

Personally I prefer a switch that moves when you press it.
