I have not done it to one of my pieces, but a vocalist I was working with reworked a song we were working on together for acoustic guitar so she could play it at home.  Honestly….her version sounded better.   We never finished the full project, and I can’t find any recordings we made of it (probably lost in the great hard disk crash of 2003).

It seems like a cool way to kickstart creative ideas as long as you’re not dedicated to a single mode of production, ie synths, samplers, whatever.
