When 'Allow Negative Frames' is enabled in user preferences and No Sync is selected, audio playback happens in negative frames.
If you can't play the video in your web browser, right-click the video --> copy link address (or equivalent) and play it in a media player like VLC.

Hi, thanks for the report. This is a known problem - audaspace doesn't work with negative timings. The reason for this is that blender itself wasn't really designed to work with audio - to overcome some of these problems, I had to make some design decisions that ended in not supporting negative timings. The alternative would have been to not support animation (of volume, pitch, etc.), which is definitely the worse alternative. We could at least document somewhere that negative timings don't work with audio?
