I've seen a few footstep plugins when searching, but none of them appear to have a very common feature I've seen in other engines/games.

In my experience, a very common feature is to be able to specify several sounds for each terrain type, then to also have the game randomly choose a pitch variation between a min and max each time it plays a step. That way, if you have 3 sounds, and 20% pitch variation for each of them, you can walk 100 steps and it you don't notice a pattern.

Does anyone know if any of the MV plugins do this?-

See TheoAllen’s plug-in, linked in his post here: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/footsteps-se-when-walking.98822/

I haven’t used it, but a quick look suggests it supports terrain regions and that you can use a plug-in command to change the sound, including pitch. Combined with simply generating a random number and then using conditional to check that random number and assign a new pitch, would this do what you want?

could also use yanfly region common events, then within the common event, roll a variable and a series of conditional branches checking for results of the variable's random value, which can then play the sound effect desired, but with a different pitch for each result

Thanks for the suggestion; unfortunately that's RB for VX; I need a version for MV as stated in the thread tag.

Sorry! Completely missed that!
Thanks for being polite about it.

Perhaps Zerothedarklord’s suggestion of Yanfly’s plug-in is what you need then? I haven’t used that either though

Sorry everyone, I am here sporadically. After 6 years of delays after delays in my life, I try to do all mat once and that means that I spread thin everywhere because it just is impossible to crunch 6 years in one or even two, but I try! I wish many of that I would already given you and put behind but... well...
I'm looking for an experienced gamer who has played a few games created with RPG Maker, who knows what an alpha build is, who may remember the old days when cliché was the favorite word on Creation Asylum, who, if a reviewer, would ask for my permission before making a review to post on YouTube, or whatever, since I will be messaging you a 10 minute, or so, DEMO based on an alpha build of Effervesce Fallacy™.
