Zoom

 
 
Founded in 1983, the Zoom Corporation spent its first years helping other manufacturers develop sound generator LSI, rhythm machines, and MIDI synchronizer systems. Zoom now produces a wide array of recording devices, including a line of portable "handy" recorders as well as multi-effects processors, effects pedals, drum machines and samplers. Over the past thirty years, the company has established a solid reputation as a manufacturer of innovative yet affordable products which are based on original microchip designs.
