Ableton, synths & midi how to?

Good afternoon gearslutz!

So this is something i've had on my mind for a long while but have never really figured out.

Basically, my goal is to be able to play my tb03 (and later microkorg) as a sound module with one midi keyboard (midi via usb into ableton). I've seen a producer friend of mine do this with a midi interface but i'm not 100% if that's what i need.

Ideally i'd like to be able to record the midi jam I play on my keyboard (with the sound of my tb03) so that I can edit whatever mistakes I made on the ableton recording and then later bounce the final take out as audio.

Would something like a MOTU Midi Express 128 be what I'm looking for since they midi keyboard itself doesn't have a midi out but only usb? Would i be able to use the interface to send midi from that keyboard to the tb03 via ableton midi in/out function?

Thanks a bunch!
