So, spin-offs. Are you a fan or not? I personally am not a fan of this. It's nice that this option exists for kompozers who have put a lot of time and effort into their contribution for a song, where then their idea is not accepted. This gives them the opportunity to move forward with their vision for the song if the collab owner and - if applicable - the other contributors are fine with it. The reason I don't turn on the option for spin-offs for my collabs (exceptions aside) is because I don't really see this as a collaboration anymore. This is also mainly due to the observation that it is often about the vocal contribution. Which again may be the result of the lack of vocalists on this website, but that's another discussion. Vocals are usually added last to the collaboration. Of course, there are exceptions. In most cases my vocal contribution is inspired by something from the original collaboration. For example, that guitar, the piano, the bass, groove, the whole thing or whatever. If this becomes different in a spin-off then I can rarely get used to it. And sometimes as a singer you can suddenly sound out of tune because of changes in chords etc. And sometimes your timing is wrong too. In addition, it still remains strange for me to hear my own voice. My shortcoming, but also another reason for no spins with my voice! Lol! Sooooo this is a long post! Sorry. I'm not usually this long-winded (and serious). But I'm curious what others think about this, particularly vocalists and singer-songwriters.
