    The Venom has a USB sound card built into it. You do not need the Behringer device.

    Configuring Cubase / Nuendo for use with M-Audio devices

    With the Venom configured as the Audio and MIDI device in Cubase, you can record from Venom's inputs 1/2 to record its internal sounds, as well as any external devices connected to its audio inputs. You can also record MIDI over USB, then send the MIDI back over USB to trigger the Venom sounds, and then record that audio back over USB into Cubase.

    Make sure you connect your speakers/headphones to Venom as well.

    Hi there.
    Apologies for hijacking your thread becas888 (i'm happy to start a new one if need be) but I would like to get something clear... I still have no luck getting the USB audio to work on the M-Audio Venom. I don't have Pro-Tools but i've tried it with the latest version of Ableton Live, the latest version of Reaper and the latest version of DSP-Quattro and in all cases I get the same issues.

    1) Sound from the Venom will either play about 5secs after the key has been pressed OR
    2) A few notes can be played but then it will lock onto on sound and sustain it for 5-10secs before abruptly cutting it off.

    Sounds coming in from the connected computer and any other devices works fine. It's only sounds from the Venom that have this issue... requiring another mixer/soundboard in order to record from the Venom.
    I have tried this on my two Macs...

    1) Mac Mini - 2.4ghz / 4gb ddr3 ram / OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard
    2) Macbook Pro - 2.5ghz 4gb ddr2 ram / OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard

    I'm not using a hub... in fact i've pulled out all other connections to test it and still no luck.
    I have the 1.8.7 drivers installed and 1.15.4 firmware.

    Any ideas? What have I missed?
    thanks in advance
