Alesis DM5 module - velocity control?

I'm planning to use Cakewalk to provide backing for a live performance, driving a number of synth racks.

My Alesis DM5 is providing the drum sounds, but does not appear to respond to the volume (i.e. velocity) control on the Cakewalk mixer. This seems to be the case for every song which seems to suggest that the DM5 is simply ignoring any velocity command send by MIDI from Cakewalk.

I'm not trying to do anything sophisticated like change the volume of different drum sounds within the patch, simply to change the overall volume of the output of the DM5 on a song-by-song basis, without having to manually change it on the module itself.

Any advice?
