You might want to try the other way: Octo synced to your DAW. That is what works for me, and the reason is:
Timing difference between the tracks played by Octo and the tracks that was played by Octo but you now recorded them into the DAW.
Of course it depends on your workflow and what you are trying to accomplish.
I build up a bunch of tracks in the Octo, and then record them one by one into (in my case) Ableton. With Octo synced to Ableton, everything stays completely in sync throughout the whole process. Syncing the other way raises several timing issues.
If you record all tracks at once, you would be ok though.
And whether or not Cubase "likes" to sync to something else is an entirely different matter, but if it insists on being the master, well, that is your answer.
Oh, and welcome to the forum, and congrats with your new machine!
