It is. First order signals are just a subset of any higher order.

That's an entirely separate issue. If you take for example the first
four channels of third order Ambix set, you get an Ambix first order
order signal. Then if you need FuMa first order you need to adjust
the W gain.
A different matter is e.g. using a higher order decoder with only a
first order signal, or mixing a first order signal into a higher
order one. Then for best results you need to modify the first order
signals. This may be what you remember.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
