I know this has been discussed before, but I can’t see that the developer’s
has fixed this and I will try to clarify what’s the problem. If you
can help further, please post.
I believe that:
When recording on a VST instrument’s track, Cubase
should move the timing of notes and controller data forward.
This to give the player and the recorded take justice.
EDIT: Please watch this video if you recognize this problem.

So, we can tamper with track delay, making it work but what if you want to quantize?
Then you have to mark all notes and nudge them to the right a bit,
otherwise chances are that notes unfairly will jump to the left.
I think this subject is important - not only for this particular reason,
but when I read around the forum, It seems like some people believe
they actually are having hardware or software problems because of this.
If you are bothered by this problem, all you can do for the moment
is to use the Steinberg support form to report it. It’s important
that you do this, because the reason it’s not fixed yet is that no one
earlier has reported about it. If you suspect you got any other midi
problems and that your notes always come off early or late, then it
shouldn’t be confused with this issue. This thread is only about
timing difference on recording vs playback when using VST instruments.
