Plugging a TRS plug into a TS output jack could put ground on the ring of 
cable.  The output doesn't care and neither does the patchbay.  But the 
that ultimately receives it might care if it expects a balanced signal.  
might notice volume loss, treble loss, increased hum, or combinations

My Behringer mixer is designed to do this as some outputs on some Mackies, 
But not all balanced outs are designed that way.  Consult your gear's
