Global Musical Instrument Communication Standard (GMICS): An Integrated Digital Audio and Control Communication Specification for Instruments
This paper provides an in-depth look at the Global Musical Instrument Communication Standard (GMICS-) from the electrical, physical, data link, and control perspective. Using the 100-megabit Ethernet physical layer, and newly defined data link and control protocols, GMICS provides a low latency digital audio and control highway appropriate for instruments, especially in live performance situations where delay is intolerable.:
