Yamaha DX5 - Was there an "E!" upgrade, or mod for velocity?

Hi all. For the Yamaha DX5, was there ever a mod (such as E!) that addressed the keyboard velocity limit on these like there was on the DX7?
Thanks for any info!

Not that I've ever seen, or heard of.

The DX5 really was a much more expensive and consequently rarer synth than the DX7, so third-party companies wouldn't have made much from supporting the relatively few DX5 owners, unlike the DX7.

However, there should be other boxes, MIDI processors or software that can expand out the velocities without needing to mod the DX5 itself...
