I am not familiar with MOTU interfaces, and have not experienced hanging notes for a long time, but there can be many reasons for this. E.g. poor cables can affect signal quality (both analog and digital can suffer from this).
Does the MIDI > Reset (in the Cubase menu) fix the problem when it the hung notes occur?
Some devices also have problems with MIDI running status
