velocity issues

many instruments seem to be by default giving no or very little responce to velocity info…
i use win7 cubase 6.5.1 and have all the updates for all the vst’s.

it may be in some obvious place i don’t see but i can’t find a velocity sensivity control.

also i purchased hypnoytic dance while i get the loops and sounds on halion 4 , i don’t see what appears to be a seperate instrument-like looking control screen…like the one shown in the ad for hynotic dance on it;s page inthe website.
