Back in the day, there were three main mechanical keyboard switches. The IBM Buckling Spring, the Cherry MX switch, and the Alps SKCL/SKCM. The Buckling Spring still lives on today in the Unicomp Model M replicas, and Cherry is still going strong with their switches. One of the switches that died out were the Alps switches. They made clicky, tactile and linear switches as well, and they are comparable to the Cherry switches. They were just a different style of switch and had a slightly different feel and sound to them. 

With Alps gone, Matias took up the mantle and has made Alps clone switches, with 3 main switch types. 

  • Click: Tactile and noisy, this is the switch that most resembles the clicky keyboard of old.
  • Quiet Click: Tactile and quieter, this is the switch that gives you most of the tacticality of the Click, but half the noise.
  • Quiet Linear: The newest Matias switch, this has no tactile feedback and is extremely quiet.
