For starters, you'll want to use Reaper and the Facebook 360 Spatial Workstation as the foundation of your ambisonic mixing and monitoring. Download their free software and watch a bunch of tutorial videos, and join the 360 Spatial Workstation group on Facebook if you can. There are people working on integrating head-tracking headphones, or a device you can add to any headphones for head-tracking, but without spending any money the easiest way to simulate head-tracking is with the 360 "magic window" that you pan around with your mouse.

You can also download the free packages from Blue Ripple Sound (o3a Core), Aalto Sparta, and IEM. That will give you all the tools you need for now.
Cool, thanks Over-Man. I look forward to getting started.
