This paper describes the architecture of a stream editor: it accepts a MADI stream as input and produces an edited MADI stream as output. MADI, the Multichannel Audio Digital Interface, is a high speed (100 Megabit/second) serial interconnect. The editor is designed to be controlled by a workstation attached to a high speed network, which is also attached to a remote file system. Complications relating to the design of the MADI protocol and the difficulty of high speed implementation are also discussed.
