Cubase and Maschine together?

Hi Guys, just wondering if any of you guys use N.I. Maschine alongside Cubase? I was considering expanding my sounds by adding Massive and came across Maschine which includes Massive and other stuff.

I already have controller keyboard and CMC units for Cubase so thinking that the £600 for Maschine (its reduced for today and tomorrow i think) may be better spent elsewhere? I love the look of Maschine, its so shiny with lots of knobs and lights lol.
I am thinking that this would be like running two entirely different DAWs side by side as Maschine has its own software (not sure it it classes as a DAW?).
Any advice appreciated.
