So I am working on sound for a permanent installation involving 6  
speakers in a large circular room.  Are 6 speakers enough to do  
anything useful using ambisonics?  Or am I better off using the  
simpler vbap?

I am just starting to understand the basics of ambisonics, thanks to  
Florian's intro.  I will be programmatically controlling the position  
of the samples, since it will be synced up with a video.  So I don't  
think I really need the GUIs like cubemixer.

Are there any simple, working demos of the IEM ambi stuff?

and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.      - Martin
