Upsampling 1st order Ambisonics for hexagonal array

Hi there,

I am looking to upsample a 1st order AmbiX file to 2nd order so I can play it back on a hexagonal speaker array (horizontal only).

Is this actually possible and how can I approach it?

I see that the Harpex-X plugin allows you to decode an AmbiX input to higher order output. Has anyone done this or could guide me through the process?

Looking forward to hearing any advice you can give. Thanks!

...not with any ambiX files but with a-format signals or double-m/s signals, using whatever decoder is at hand/aporopriate: on can easily decode to as many outputs (and formats) as the decoder and the interface/mixer allow: i have mostly been using 6.0 and 5.1 formats, depending on venue/speaker system/intended soundfield; i prefer having a center channel over phantom center though, especially for live situations...
