How do I adjust MIDI CC while a single note is playing?

I'd like to play a single long note and adjust the modwheel (or another knob) while it is playing. Something like

m1 $ n "[f6 af6 bf6 c7]/4" # modwheel sine1

But that code doesn't work, the wheel never moves.

This doesn't work because Tidal only sends messages when notes are sent. But there's a workaround: Tidal will send MIDI note 128, but this isn't actually a valid note for synths and they should ignore it. So you can do this:

m1 $ stack [
  n "[f6 af6 bf6 c7]/4",
  midinote "128*32" # modwheel sine1

The "fake" note will be sent 32 times each cycle (which should be plenty) along with the modwheel changes I want.
