I recently received a balanced 1/4 TRS to connect my audio processor to my interface and while recording a sample I noticed that the waveform was traveling 180 degrees in reverse (downwards) instead of up. When I listened to the sample, it sounded different and off compared to how my microphone normally sounds. So I inverted the track in Audacity and by doing so the polarity was correct again and it sounded normal. This made me curious and led me to create a profile post asking if anyone else can hear the difference between absolute and reverse polarity. I think this is pretty interesting and I thought it would be fun to see what anyone who wants to compare the two thinks. Here are the tracks. This is the same recording, the only difference is one of the tracks is inverted.
