Boss MS-3 to control the MC6?

I’m considering adding a Boss MS-3 to my board to have the benefit of its multi-effects and the loop switching. The MC6 is definitely the brain of my board currently and won’t be going anywhere. The MS-3 only has MIDI out, but shouldn’t I be able to use it to select a bank and preset on the MC6 when I select a patch on the MS-3? That way, the MS-3 becomes the first link in the MIDI chain but only drives the overall MC6 functionality by enabling the preset I need. I’d appreciate anyone’s thoughts who has experience in this. Thanks.

Yes, the MC6 can be controlled by other MIDI pedals. You can refer to the MC6 MIDI implementation chart here: MC6 MKII User Manual (Firmware v3.10)
