Your post talked about signal pair and ground, implying a fully balanced system. In that case, lifting the ground shouldn’t affect signal or metering.
Some believe that all grounds should tie together anyway, and there’s a good chance many of them will link through rack rails and Edison ground.
But except for the case of phantom mics , ground is irrelevant to true balanced wiring.
