How to import midi sequences/patterns?

Hi all,

{I’ve been searching for this but I got tons of results which actually don’t really answer my question.}

Is there a way to import a midi sequence (i.e. pattern), like in my case a pattern from my MachineDrum, directly into Pyramid? I’ve tried by just hitting the record button in Live mode and playing the Machine Drum, but it only recorded like 1-2 notes max…
Or do I need first to dump it to my computer as Sysex, then convert to midi file, then copy to an SD card, and copy that midi file from the SD card? I hope there is a smarter way to do it.
