  1. Hi, looking for a bit of help. I'm installing an M1 passive into my iMix set up. I want to be able to be able to mix between the undersaddle and the hole pickup. A friend of mine told me just to plug it into the iBeam hole. The issue is that there is no mini 1/8 to mini cable supplied with the pick up which seems to be the cable needed here. Am I missing something obvious?

About Caper
For over 20 years Joey Cape has been lending his voice, his songwriting skills, his guitar playing and his casual charm to the likes of bands as disparate as Lagwagon, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Bad Astronaut and even as a solo artist. A rock and roll renaissance man, Joey’s a punk, an indie rocker, a troubadour and a shit-kicking cover artist all in one, and he’s been doing it all since before most of you were even born. Prolific as ever, now Joey finds his voice in a steady stream of acoustic releases. Most recently he’s teamed up with the late Tony Sly (No Use For A Name) for a follow up to 2004’s Acoustic, this time the record Acoustic Volume 2. Tony passed away on July 31st, 2012 at the end of an east coast run with Joey.

Joey is probably most famous for his work fronting Lagwagon. As a pioneer of the classic Fat Wreck sound, Joey and Lagwagon first began in 1989 where they gained international notoriety for their rapid tempos, extreme technical proficiency and alternately heartfelt lyrics. Over the course more than two decades as a band, Lagwagon has put out eight studio records, a live album, an E.P. and recently the comprehensive box set Putting Music In Its Place. Looking at their 2012 touring schedule it is clear, they show no signs of halting the wagon.

Lagwagon is only part of Joey’s story. Notoriously a workaholic, "The Caper" has spent the last decade or so moonlighting as the guitarist in loudmouthed cover band/antagonists, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes as well as exploring some of his more obtuse indie rock influences as the frontman and guitarist of acts Bad Astronaut, The Playing Favorites, Scorpios and Bad Loud. In 2004, Joey put out his first acoustic record, the aforementioned Tony Sly split LP Acoustic, which featured sparse takes on Lagwagon tunes. Then, in 2008, Joey and his acoustic guitar returned with his first in a long line of truly solo efforts Bridge, which featured some never before heard songs that have drawn comparisons to such indie folk acts as Iron and Wine and Elliot Smith. On his latest acoustic effort, Acoustic Vol. 2, Joey’s side features five more acoustic versions of Lagwagon songs and a new tune while Tony has matched him with five stripped down NUFAN numbers and his respective new song, the last he would record.
In 2013, Joey shows no sign of slowing down, currently working with Lagwagon on their first full-length album in 8 years, a new Me First and the Gimme Gimmes record and of course his latest solo acoustic L.P., all the while touring in the interim.
