Microphone Description Protocol

This is an idea about a byte efficient protocol that describes the contents of an audio channel. At first, you may laugh…

It uses UNICODE characters as a method to condense the language needed to describe something in the field. There are Emoji for so many generic audio terms.


An Emoji is 4 bytes to encode using UTF-8.

Framework: Emoji followed by a description repeat. n feeds n+1

No Emoji = end of sequence

Signal Path is in the order it is displayed

To describe a person at a microphone, their role and info about the microphone and how it’s connected to the system a series of Emojis followed by text can be concatenated

EXAMPLE CONCATINATION:
🆔 PRODUCTION ID PTP TIME STAMP😃NAME📛FUNCTIONℹINFORMATION⚠WARNING🎤MIC MODEL👻PHANTOM POWER🔌CONNECTION N🔌CONNECTION N+1🎚SENSITIVITY

Using this concatenation you can build up descriptions of the source

EXAMPLE STRING:

How to create a mix
A mix is made of a web of sources at a particular level
🎨Mix 1🕸️ Axel🎚 -10🕸️ Person 2🎚 -10🕸️ Person 3🎚 -10🕸️ Person 4🎚 -10🕸️ Person 5🎚 -10

Give that mix to someone
🎨Mix 1🎚 -20 🎧WB13-3😃person 1
Headphones and on the person who receives the mix at a particular level

Use an EQ as a preset to insert

I did a quick test in Google sheets and it does parse the UNICODE as strings
