How to Play My Music Backwards

Listening to music backwards is not as wacky as it sounds.

It used to be possible to place a record on a turntable and play it in reverse. Since the invention of CDs, this is no longer possible. However, with an audio editing program such as Audacity, you can play your music in reverse and make a new recording to hear what it sounds like backwards. This can be an enjoyable experiment and lets you search for any hidden messages in the music.

Download the Audacity software from its website.

Install Audacity by double-clicking on the application icon.

Start the Audacity program by clicking on the installed icon.

Drag the music file into the main window of Audacity. This will copy the file to the program.

Find the "Effect" menu at the top of the screen. Open the menu and click on "Reverse." The audio program will automatically reverse the entire song.

Go to the "File" menu and select the "Export" option. Click "OK" and listen to your new file after it finishes saving.

Tips


If you want only a small section of a song reversed, you can drag and drop the area of the song you want reversed into the main preview pane.
