Midi Splitter box?

Hey guys this is my first post here but long time reader, sorry if this is very long.

I have an E-mu orbit 9090 v2 that i hook up via midi to my tt-303 which functions as a sequencer. I layer the sounds from the 9090 and the 303 in my mixer with some basic eq'ing. It sounds great! I also use my Novation Ultranova as a supliment for the tinny 9090 sounds with midi. This has an added appeal of being able to use the Mod and pitch wheels AND the arpeggiator on my novation for all kinds of craziness, and because the novation is connected via USB, it syncs perfectly to my tempo changes.

My problem is this, I have been able to sync my TT-303 to my DAW (ableton 9) using a 3 dollar midi to usb cable i got from amazon. What im looking to do might be a little ambitious, but i want to know if its possible and what to buy if it is.

I want my orbit 9090, TT-303 and novation all plugged into midi. I want to treat my 303 as a sequencer (as well as processing the audio out) like ive been doing previously while being able to use the Novation's mod and pitch wheels to affect the Orbit 9090's filters and other real time control abilities. Right now, its impossible for me to record a tt-303 sequence with the orbits sounds being anything but filterless. THE LEAST I want to be able to do is to allow the 303 AND Novation Ultranova to send midi data to the orbit simultaneously. Is this even possible? If it is, can I also connect the midi out from a splitter box to my computers usb so i can send midi clock data from my DAW so my tt-303 is controlling the orbit as well as receiving clock data?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond.
