invert disables hearing

i tried to use the invert effect but when i used it, it stopped playing. i couldnt hear anything. when i undid the invert, it was back to normal. how can i fix this?

i think i am using windows 10
and am using 3.2.1

Do you still see the waveform, and when you play do the meters show activity?

Are you inverting one channel in a “stereo” file? …If you have a stereo file with identical left & right channels, and you invert one channel it will play on stereo speakers but the channels will cancel to silence when played-back on a mono system (like the speaker on a phone).

destructive interference …
