Software for comparing wav files

Im currently bouncing stems of my mixes. Its the first time i've done it and Im paranoid Im going to miss something/screw something up. For example I just realised I did the stem of my bass but the kick was muted so the sidechain compression was inactive.

Is there a program (preferably free) which can analytically compare two wav files and report differences so that I can compare my summed stems with my stereo track.
I can't rely on listening, for example I didnt notice the missing bass compression with the summed stems.

You can use your DAW.

On one track the original stereo bounced track.
On the second track the summed stems.

Then phase reverse one of the tracks, if they cancel out all the time
you didn't miss anything.

If they dont cancel out you missed something!
