Direct drive/chain drive/belt drive - pedals need to swing just like sticks. Then you just apply impetus or brakes as needed. Axis types or anything similar though - Synth keyboards for instance, require you be able to power thru the initial resistance and then reset under your own power. Can be done obviously; you have reciprocating sets of muscles. Synth keys are of course no fight for good hands and as stated elsewhere, legzes can has ample strong to do metal. I think the major drawback there is no headroom for smooth articulation and transitions as you might encounter playing uh, music? Hence the continuing popularity of standard action pedals.
