I'd use a sel object
In the following example, the midi clock is replaced by a metronome. that trig a counter that cycles every 6 beats (main beats, since I set my metronome to 1 instead of 4). The counter counts from 0 to 15 and then cycle.
The sel only send a trig pulse on beat number 1 (see black box), but it can be set to trig on any of the 16 beats.
The sel triggers a sample player.
I have no idea if it would work for midi but I don't see why it would not since it works for sample play.
This setup is set for playing full bars samples. But if you want to play beat samples like on a Korg electribe, you just set the "note" parameter in your metronome to 4. So the metronome count 4 beats in every bar, making the counter counting all beats instead of all bars.
Hope it helps.
