Live Mode + Digitakt

Just got my Pyramid and have it currently set up with one MIDI channel per Digitakt sample. Though with this method I haven’t figured out how to record in live mode the same way you would on the Digitakt . I’d like to play pad 1 as my kick + pad 2 (snare) etc up to 8 pads on the Squarp without having to select each track individually. Or does anyone have their digitakt setup differently?
