   I have had a 2012 Mac Mini for about a month. I am starting to do home audio recording as a hobby. I just purchased an M-Audio Venom keyboard only to find this tidbit on the M-Audio site concerning the Venom;


• Known Issue: Venom is currently incompatible with USB 3.0 ports. Please use USB 2.0 ports to connect Venom to your system.


   Yep I'm a dumbo for not vetting the unit better. So, is there a work around for this? The new Minis have had several issues and I think OS updates, firmware updates, etc. will resolve these issues. I guess this problem lies with the Venom so I will ask M-Audio if they have a fix in the works. I was thinking about purchasing a USB 2 to Firewire 800 adapter but I don't think there is such an animal? At least I couldn't find one?

   Any input will be most welcome, thanks.

Mac mini (Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
