Very, very, very strange! You've done it right after the book and even 
double checked everything. The only plausible explanation seems to be 
that the EDP feedback midi control for some reason does not work with 
midi cc 1 ("modulation wheel").

Since you have now developed a talent in programming both the EDP and 
the FCB you may try to use another midi cc to see if it's working? Over 
here I have been using midi cc 30 on midi channel 1 and it has never 
let me down.
