I don’t own a pyramid but do own a DT and I think I see how this is done. The tldr is on the DT use tracks 9-16 to send the mute(0)/unmute(anything else) to each pyramid track 1-64. The CC matches the track to mute. Ex. Send 0 to CC7 to mute track 7 in the pyramid. Send 1(or anything not 0) to CC7 to unmute track 7 in the pyramid.
I wrote steps for how to sequence the MPC drum synth from the DT, the DT side seems like it would apply so I can get you setup of the DT to output mutes CCs to midi channel X, but how you go from midi in on the pyramid to track 7 is a mystery to me.
The way you’d use this would be to set, for example track 9 on the DT as the mute channel. Put a trig on step 1 and hold it down, then go to amp and turn on an encoder and set it’s CC to the track you want to mute on the pyramid (ex A set to CC7). Go to the filter page (still holding the step) and turn that encoder (ex A) to send 0. Now it should send a mute when this pattern plays.
You can mute track 9 on the DT like normal and it won’t send. Let me use unmuting the track as an example.
Track 10, put a trig on step 1, set encoder a to 1 on filter, cc7 on amp (‘send unmute to track 7’). Copy the trig to every step. Mute track 10 [func+10] on the DT.
Now when this pattern plays track 9 trig 1 sends CC7 0 - mute track 7.
If you unmute track 10 at any point , the next step will send CC7 1 - unmute.
Setup DT optional, DT as master (this part is really about the mpc setup my friend has :p)

Func + push encoder A to enable the encoder over Chan, set it to match the channel that controls the tracks on the pyramid, eg 9.
These others are standard midi CCs - (PB) Pitch Bend, (AT) Aftertouch, (MW) Mod Wheel, (BC) Breath Control. They don’t do much on drum synth but do on other synths. Func + push in the encoder to toggle enable/disable.
This page is your definable CCs. The definition is on the next page, Amp. This page is the value the CC will send.
Func+Enable as many as you want. Do all 8 if you want to send 8 mutes.
This page maps the CC that the Fltr page uses - we’re setting the CC values to use in the Fltr page changes. We’ll set them to the track number we want to mute in the pyramid A:7,B:15,C:… etc.
Repeat this last section defining the CCs across the 9-16 banks for each 8 tracks you want to be able to mute at once. . You probably don’t need all of them so maybe do this one and then decide what you actually want to map
You can trig lock the CC to whichever track you want to mute/unmute so you only have to map as many as you want to control at once.
you can flip progressions too so Ex A could mute track 7 while B sends unmute to track 8.
