New to guitars and effects pedals and just looking for some advice. Recently bought a Boss GT6 pedal and would like to transfer patches from my pc to my pedal. I've been told that I will need a midi cable. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks in advance.
yes, i have the GT8 and need a midi cable to transfer patches so id imagine the GT6 would also need this. You can prob view all the patch details onlien and manually plug them into the unit - although this would take alot of time.
