It seems it’s a bit of a hype to make Ambisonic mixes at the moment, everybody is doing it and that include us. We use Reaper for mixing (and for the rest of the production in most cases) and since it is one of the most versatile software when it comes to routing signals it makes it perfect for Ambisonics. The setup which we ended up with was reaper running a set of free plug-ins from Bruce Wiggins, he named his series of Ambisonic plug-ins WigWare and he have set up a great site with tutorials to get you started. It seems hard at first sight but once you get your head around the concept it’s actually easier than mixing in stereo. Our guess is that this is the future when it comes to recording and mixing for film.
Noisebud says; Ditch ProTools, Cubase and Logic (because they suck) go and get ya’ll a copy of REAPER:

And when you realize what all this is you will have to go out and buy 20 new pairs of your favourite studio monitor. Happy mixing! =)
