I have experience with max, but mostly with jitter and opencv. I have been looking into ambisonics, particularly the ICST externals and vst's because I was told that using the vst's in ableton/max for live would be easier. The project, in brief is to create an immersive sound environment using four speakers which are hooked up to an ambisonic field so i can create the impression of sound waves surging across the speakers creating the illusion that sounds rush past and around the listener who will be at the centre of the field. would anyone be able to run me through the basic hardware set-up and point to where i could get started?
any help much appreciated.
