The only way to de-sensitize a clutch motor is to have really good control of the treadle. It takes a long time to get the hang of stitching slowly using a clutch motor, and in the end the only thing that works is a lot of practice. I've seen guys put a piece of foam under the treadle and they claim it works.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
