Leave Audio alone in its own snake or you may experience "hearing Midi" 

I had my rack recabled by my tech with 2 snakes coming from the ground
(midi+cv) (audio)
and 3 snakes assembling the 2 4U racks (Midi) (CV) (Audio)

15 min setup, power on, play.

I have some diagrams in PDF If you want to have a look
