If it's got factory MIDI, then I'm pretty sure it won't respond to mod wheel messages - only three settings for the pitch wheel (wide, medium and narrow). Mine has the Kenton kit fitted and can use CC#1 or aftertouch for receiving modulation messages.

Upon reading Wine Country's MIDI kit specs, it appears that mod wheel functions aren't supported either, just pitch in the same three ranges as the Sequential factory kit.

This site has the installation and implementation notes (go to the MIDI page), and I can find nothing that states support of the mod wheel - have a look: http://users.telenet.be/prophet-5/main.htm

Anyone know anything else?

I don't think it's happening. It's too basic.
