Rytm mk II – How to change patterns with Octarack MIDI

I’m hoping to be able to change Rytm mk II patterns in sync with Octatrack via the Octatrack MIDI output.

I’ve been trying to find the pattern change Midi CC parameters for the Rytm, but cannot locate them in the manual (APPENDIX C: MIDI, from pg. 79).

Page 57 says “PRG CH RECEIVE will when active make Analog Rytm MKII respond to incoming program change messages, which is useful when wanting to select patterns externally.”, so I take this is doable.

Any tips?

OT : MIDI > SYNC > Prog Change Send checked, Pchange Channel = X (1-16), not AUTO.
AR : GLOBAL > MIDI > MIDI SYNC > Prog Change Receive checked.
MIDI CHANNELS > Prog Change IN = X (1-16)

Program Changes are not CCs (Control Changes). You have to set the same midi channel for send (OT) and receive (AR).
