MC3 and Boss GT 1000 Core

Can the MC3 control and select presets on the Boss GT 1000 Core without the use of a computer? I hooked up a softstep 2 to the GT 1000 Core but it only works when the computer is on.

Does any one know the answer to this question?

You can program the MC3 first to send the MIDI messages you want using the editor on the computer. After which, you don’t need a computer to get the MC3 to work with the GT Core.

Programming the MC3 is also possible on the device itself, but the more advanced message types requires the editor.
