[zeromq-dev] finding the right message pattern

Hi ZeroMQ Community,

I'm currently working on a small project where multiple machines
output data from a recording device (e.g. audio data). Note that a
recording device is just another zeromq capable client. A master
machine collects the output of each recording device. The recording
device is selected, initiated and stopped by the master machine. To
sum up, the master has to communicate with each recording devices in a
bidirectional fashion.

The request/replay message pattern works but produces unnecessary
overhead since the master machine hast to reply to every data packet
the recording device sends. Is there a cleaner solution, perhaps a
paired socket? Do you have any suggestions?
