Will Flex sell an "octopus" style cable that converts the ACC jack into Line In, Line 1 Out, etc? If not, is there any demand for this (besides mine)?

As reported elsewhere many of us are using the nifty Winford DB-15 break out boards:

Winford has high quality data sheets and the product is about $15.00 plus $6.00 for USPS Priority Mail shipping. If you order 2 the shipping price is still $6.00.

If you go with this slim breakout board you want the screw jack version. The non-slim breakout boards will interfere with adjacent connections but the slim version plugs into the back nicely.

I wish these had been around for all of the DB-9 and DB-15 connectors I soldered over the years.

An octopus may fit your needs better but the Winford breakout board is worth a look.
