Apogee One, DPA 4099, DeVoe Negra, MacBook Pro, Pro Tools 9.5 and QSC K’s

Ive been wondering if there would be a way that I would be able to play live and travel with just my guitar case and a laptop.  I think the answer is yes.  I have been using the Apogee One a very small (size of iPhone) interface that allows me to hook up the DPA 4099G mic that clips onto my DeVoe (phantom power supplied from Apogee One) the Apogee One hooks up to my MacBook Pro with USB 2 and then I run either Pro Tools 9.5 which to my ears sounds better than Logic or Main Stage (However Logic and Main Stage do sound ok just not as smoth or more bright inho).  Then in Pro Tools I am using three tracks on for the Gutiar Mic, then two different drum programs Strike and Boom.  Then off the one I have a stereo line out to to XLR connectors that run to the QSC K8’s.  The sound is fantastic I do use the BBE sonic max plug in for my main mix as well.

Fix iWeb in 10.6.2 The million dollar Trick

This works great

Here’s how to fix the “iWeb quit unexpectedly while using the SFWordProcessing plug-in” error.

This is called “The million dollar trick or how to fix iWeb in 10.6.2″ since a lot of people struggled with it since the 10.6.2 release. With no real solution. Simply deactivating Hoefler Text as suggested on the ADFs doesn’t really solve it. Now here you are…

Note: As visitors are writing in the comments it also works to fix Keynote and Pages (Thank you)


1. Go to Applications => Font book
2. Select Hoefler => Ctrl+click on it and “Remove Hoefler Text Family”
3. A message will appear telling you that all Hoefler files will be trashed
4. Emptying trash you will probably be told that the file is in use. Restart your computer and after the restart empty the trash.
5. Click here to download Hoefler text
6. You will find a folder called “11628″. In it you find a file called “Hoefler Text.dfont”
7. Move that file to:
Macintosh HD => Library => Fonts

Start iWeb and you will see that it’s perfectly working.
