How to Connect Sample Pad Pro to Yamaha DTX 500 Drum Trigger Module

I wonder can anyone help me?

I'm trying to connect my recently purchased (from eBay) Alesis Sample Pad Pro to my existing Yamaha DTX 500 drum brain, in order to be able to hear each of the pads of both units.

Using standard 1/4 jacks I can achieve this but there is a constant background buzz or hum which is frustrating.

Using a single DMX lead I can achieve interference free sound but not all of he Sample Pad Pro pads can be heard, it only seems to connect certain ones.

Is there a simple solution to this, also, the Sample Pad Pro sounds seem to be much quieter than the Yamaha. Ideally, they would all be of a similar volume initially, then I could select individual volumes as appropriate.

I need to be able to do this because I practice at home on the Yamaha rather than on my acoustic kit which I use just for live practices or gigs.

Any advice or assistance offered here would be warmly appreciated.
