Hi Flac Developers,

My name is Etienne Deleflie, I'm the founder of
http://www.ambisonia.com and, more recently,  http://soundofspace.com.

Myself and the community I serve are looking for a lossless file
format that can encapsulate ambisonic encoding. To this end a
specification has been drafted, and is nearing stability, that
describes practical features designed to get the most out of

That spec is accessible here:


I'm wondering if the FLAC community might be interested in
implementing a lossless implementation of that spec. I know there are
some current incompatibilities. I'm also aware that there are certain
open source processes involved around implementing new features. I'd
be happy to get involved with those processes if someone expressed
interest at implementing these features.
