Downmixing from 3rd Order Ambisonics

What is the method for downmixing to FOA or SOA from TOA?

I am using Nuendo but I don’t see any specific tools or instructions included on how to downmix from 3rd order.

Anybody have experience with this? What is the best way to downmix if you have done a mix in 3rd order and need to deliver in 1rst order?

I’m going to paste a quote from the Blueripple site to make it easy: “ Third order can be converted to first order by simply taking the first four channels and ignoring the rest. This means that a third order mix can be used to produce first order material easily”

Greetings,

Thierry

Ah, I see. So this would tell me that the same would apply to the first 9 channels down from 16, correct? Each added order gets us closer to the "true" off-axis directivity by adding resolution.

Thanks for the response
