$0. That's the great part about ambisonics right now, for two main reasons that I can see. First, many universities are the leading the charge on ambisonics now, both from a research perspective and in coding software packages (i.e. Aalto Sparta and IEM). Also, the Facebook 360 Spatial Workstation software used to cost around $5k a year for unlimited use, but then Facebook bought the software (Two Big Ears - which I believe also sprang from University research) and made it free. Combine that with Reaper, while not technically free, and you have a $0 solution.
