Thats the screen you get when you press one of the GP Buttons to select the next pattern to be played.
 
If you press any GP Button once to select a pattern, that pattern it wont be fired up as normally do in the pattern page of seqV4, instead of that it will only show up the name of the selected pattern to you. This is very usefull in live environment to decide what it would be the next pattern to be played before you fired up him. just like a DJ search in his Vinyl library for the next track to be played(much less live surprisses!).

PS: you will only see the "M" if you already have selected some pattern to be mixed down(since it does not make sense to state some track to be mixed if you have no pattern selected to remix.

Ableton Live API
A integration between midibox and ableton live are planned. but need more study about what and how we going to control ableton. bassicly we need to handle the clips together with midibox patterns, and will be a good option to control also audio dada inside clips(if its a audio clip).

But for now you can at last trigger ableton live clips assign a CC for each of clip launcher butttons, i do not plan to relase this without the remote script, but if you cant wait for, it will just need some tweeking inside ableton.
 
To made a analogy, each pattern here is treat as a Scene in ableton.
Create exactly 128 Scenes and assign the CC 110 Channel 16 to "Scene select".
Create exactly 128 Scenes and assign the CC 110 Channel 16 to "Scene select" inside ableton midi mapping screen(Press the button "MIDI" on the top o rigth screen corner).
Create 16 tracks and set the CC 111 Channel 16 to the first clip launch button of track 1. Do the same for track 2 using CC 112 and so on... CC 113... 114.. 127.
 
Now each time you choose a new pattern, the related scene will be handle too by midibox. the same for remixes with alone tracks.
