Is it possible to decode sound from ZYLIA 6DoF to any loudspeaker layout, e.g., 22.2 or irregular?
Yes, that’s the main purpose of the renderer.
ZYLIA 6DoF renderer – https://www.zylia.co/zylia-6dof-hoa-renderer.html
operates in the ambisonics domain. That is, it takes multiple Ambisonics signals as inputs. Inputs can be both recorded or synthetically generated. Next, the renderer produces a single ambisonics signal in a given position:

- 2-channel binaural, using any ambisonics to a binaural decoder or
- Multichannel loudspeaker setup, using ZYLIA Studio PRO plugin or any other ambisonics to loudspeakers decoder, e.g., ALLRAD from the IEM plugins.
ZYLIA Studio PRO also allows the creation of even irregular distribution of the loudspeakers on the sphere.
