This is a work in progress.
Let me know if you have issues or think it should work in a certain way. I’ll try to add features and fix issues as I can.
—Updated to version 0.3 November 13th 2019—
Switch between Overbridge Mode and Program Change Mode (in case that you don’t want to use Overbridge).
Added note off message to Overbridge mode to prevent accidental stuck notes.
—Updated to version 0.2 September 18th 2019—
- Program changes (notes) are now sent when a clip is “armed” rather than when selected.
- Can use multiple Elektron Overbridge devices at the same time switching to different patterns on each individual Elektron Device.

I made a pretty simple but useful Max for Live device that I wanted to share with whomever will find it helpful.
It’s a MIDI Effect Device which lets you name Clips starting with the pattern name like, A1…A2…H14…H15…H16… and when you select the clip it changes to that pattern.
It makes it easier to setup pattern changes in Ableton Live but the real reason I made it was to solve the Pattern Delay issue.
Normally pattern changes can only be sent when a clip starts playing and it takes the Elektron device 1 more pattern loop before it changes to the correct pattern.
This device makes it so the program change (MIDI Note on Channel 16) gets sent right when you select the clip (with mouse or push or launchpad or scene playing etc). This way if you select a scene a few beats or bars before you want it to change the Elektron machine follows correctly… Yay!
The link is at the top of the thread. I’ll add some more detailed instructions but I typed out how to use it on the maxforlive.com webpage. It’s pretty simple to use…
This is a 0.1 release I made for myself today but wanted to share because I think it’s useful.
It’s very simple right now but I will probably expand on it some after I put some use in.
I’ve only tested it on the Digitakt but it should work on the Digitone too. I’m not sure about the Analog devices but if the pattern scheme isn’t correct I’ll release an update that lets yo select what type of device you have in the future.
Let me know if you notice any glaring bugs or issues I might be able to fix quickly.
1)Drop it on it’s own “new” MIDI Track
2)Route that MIDI Track to the track that has the Overbridge plugin and set the MIDI track output to MIDI Channel 16.
3) Create clips on the MIDI track and name them starting with the name of the pattern with the letter capitalized like: A1 or H16 for example.
4) Make sure the clip name starts with the pattern name, make sure it’s capitalized, and make sure there is a space after the pattern name for it to work like: A1 Drums only or A2 Sounds of Almond nut dew running down a corn leaf or H14 I can’t believe I have this many patterns. (or whatever relevant thing you want to name it.
