Midi/Analogue Sync Set-up help needed!

Member for

I'm in the process of putting together my small live/studio set up and aside from the individual bits of hardware on my list, i need to know what else i might need to tempo sync it all together and check im not missing anything (there's a tight budget involved you see!)

Korg Electribe EM1 (Midi In, Midi Out, Midi Thru)

Roland CR78 Analogue drum machine (Ext. Clock in, Trigger Out)

Kenton Pro Mk II Midi to CV converter

MicroKorg (Midi In, Midi Out, Midi Thru)

Roland SP404 (Midi In)

My idea is to use the Electribe as the Master sequencer driving the CR78's tempo via a Kenton Midi to CV converter (as described here:
but is it possible to daisy chain the Microkorg and SP404 into the equation and have there tempos sync to the Electribe/Cr78 set-up also considering:

1) The Kenton Convertor only has 1 midi in and 1 midi thru
2) The SP404 only has midi in

Or do i need to buy some kind of multi midi interface?? Any help would be great!
