Midi Difficulties please help!

Heres what I have goin on. I am using a roland Juno 2 and a Ensoniq ESQ1 and I want to sync them to sonar. I want to sequence on the Ensoniq and use the Juno as a slave for it and sync them with Sonar Home Studio. Now here is my issue. In order to do this the only way I would know how is to connect my Ensoniq (which is the sequencer) mid in and midi out to my soundcard in normal fashion and then send the midi thru to the Juno 2 midi in and it acts as an in and out for it. Big problem however is that my Ensoniq does not have midi thru!! Is there any other way I can sync these up to use them in the way that I want to? Keep in mind I want to sequence on the Ensoniq and really only use sonar to edit midi notes individually in piano roll. Please help!

an additional midi interface is always good. maybe something with 4ins/4outs.

i think i may have one around here somewhere but i have another question as well. I have a usb to midi cable and a regular midi cable. could i just use these and still sequence everything on my esq the way i want to and use sonar and my computer as a midi thru and get more midi tracks out of it too?

thanks for the assistance but I figured out a cheaper way. Slave Sonar to the ESQ and it will control any and everything I want. WOOOOOOOOOO!
