Help Im frustrated! Syncing synths with my DX

Grrrr another syncing question!
Hey there how are you? Im a beginner to all of this synth stuff and syncing up all of these machines is driving me crazy. I dont want to just stick with one brand.
I want to use my Oberheim DXa as my master clock and trigger other synths with it to make some Minimal Wave/ Italo. I tried sending clock out of the DX to ext clock in of my SH101 but it doesnt respond in the right way (the sequenced notes come out all uneven) The plan was to send the DX clock out to the sh101 for bass and simultaneously use the DX midi out to send to my MFB step 64 to sequence little melodies on top.
Im really trying to avoid computers so Im wondering what my options are. I can:

1. Get a tr808 and trigger out of the drum outs
2. Get a Pro One instead of the SH101 but Im not sure if it will have the same problems my sh101 has with the drum machine.
3. Look into a sync box of some sort like the Roland SBX80 although I was told it slowly loses sync.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ive already spent months trying to figure this out and would really like to just get to making music! Thanks for the help.
