MIDI out (1) from the MPC to MIDI in on your interface.

MIDI in (A) from the MPC to MIDI out on your interface.

In Cubase, go transport -> sync setup

Choose interface out, send to MIDI clock

Check 'always send start message'

Set mode on MPC to MIDI clock:
Mode + PAD9, F2, sync in to 1 , out to A.


Set same tempo on Cubase as MPC.

If you have multiple ins on your interface you can record everything on seperate tracks at once.

If you're doing 2 in, solo out each track and record into Cubase.
