Default Recording Midi...Newbie Question

Is it possible to record midi on top of it self in addition to the previous take?

Heres why i want to do this.

first take: Kick and Snare
Second Take: Hi-Hat
Third Take: Tom+Cymbal fills

I'm using BFD Lite which only allows 1 instance of it self to be open at one time so i cant make 3 different tracks(or else i would). So i'm wondering if there is a way to record each take additively to 1 midi score. Because when i try it right now it records over the previous take erasing it just like Audio recording does.

thanks

Jon

P.S. FL Studio does what I'm asking here but I want to keep it all in PT if possible.

Yes. You need to turn MIDI merge on.

On the transport, click the button that looks like a sideways "Y".
