I have a 2012 Mac Mini, it has USB3 ports, no USB 2 ports. I bought a Venom today before I discovered they are not compatible with USB3
My bad, I usually check compatibility issues more thoroughly than this instance. Are there any workarounds for this? Anything in the near future to improve Venoms ability to talk to USB3? Thanks.

If I get a FireStudio Mobile could I plug the Venom keyboard analog 1/4" outs into the FSMs 1/4" inputs and interface it that way with my computer? I have this question up on a few forums, M-audio, Mac Rumors, etc. I think I could record this way, not sure how to access the Venoms editing software though?
