Linuxaudio has some strong and special points. One of them is
Ambisonics. Would be nice if people can use Debian to work and/or
experiment with Ambisonics. The good point: most of the packages needed
for Ambisonics are in Debian already! Great job!
Two are missing afaik:
- Drc http://drc-fir.sourceforge.net/
- TetraCal (Tetraproc is in Debian, not sure about TetraCal)
By the way; most packages of Fons Adriaensen are often useful and
powerful: quality software. Most packages of him are in Debian, but
today he recommended an package on the LAU mailinglist which is not in
Debian yet: jnoisemeter

not related to ambisonics. but dead useful.
not essential either. but very much recommended, as it contains
configurations to encode ambi into uhj stereo and back. for ambi use,
you want to include fons' separate "reverbs" package, which contains
some very nice b-format IR reverbs.
unrelated. it only does room and speaker correction.
it's probably my fault it got included in the list, since i once
described how to set up a diy ambi rig that includes drc. but that's
not strictly related, although helpful if you want to create your own IR
reverbs for jconvolver (or any other convolver), or if you want to
measure your room and/or speakers to perform DRC.

or any other lightweight alternative to ardour, if it's just about
if the question is "what do i include in my distro", then by all means
add all the software you mentioned. if the question is "what is the
minimum software stack i need to play around with ambisonics, then keep
it simple. in any case, you may want to include mplayer, as it's one of
the few players that does multichannel correctly (at least up to 8
channels) and will let you enjoy those soundfield recordings out on the
web without having to import them into an ardour session.
