That you need to tighten on one side and loosen on the other is a bit of an oversimplification. You want to improve tension balance when truing a wheel. When there's a spoke that's low in tension and the rim is pulling away from that side probably the truing should be done just by tightening that spoke, as the nipple has unwound bringing the wheel out of balance and subsequently out of true. If you have an OK sense of relative pitch you can judge relative tension with high accuracy by comparing the tones of the two spokes. This doesn't work between sides of a wheel. Try to make adjustments to spokes that are outliers in tension in ways that would cause the deviations you are seeing.
