Thanks, again.
There are a plethora of free tools to mix spot mics into ambisonics since the emergence of 360 video. My basic procedure is to upsample any 1st order recordings into 3rd order with the Blue Ripple Harpex Upsampler, sticking with 3rd order through mixing and for the master. I think the easiest way in is to use Reaper with the Facebook 360 Spatial Workstation as the foundation of your mix, then work in other plug-ins from Blue Ripple, IEM, aalto Sparta, Kronlachner's ambiX suite, etc. There are a bunch of free options, but the best stuff to my ears is from Blue Ripple.

Thank you very much for the recommendations. I’m looking forward to trying them out. I hadn’t previously used Reaper, but I downloaded it (quite compact) and will get acquainted. I have a lot to learn wrt immersive audio, but it will be an enjoyable challenge. I’d once worked with 3D graphics, and it would seem that some of the underlying concepts are similar, not that I plan to resort to coding matrix transformations and such. A new toolset is always invigorating.

Would love to attend. But as the world is blowing its nose on our dollar at present, it won't happen. Maybe next year.
