Zoom: Click+drag (vertically) on the timeline
Zooming behavior with click+drag in the timeline

Click+drag up/down in the timeline (in a specified lane), zooms in and out. Centered on the point of clicking. Zoom depends on mouse movement. FR applies both for main arrangement view and MIDI editor.

Similar to Ableton Live and Cubase.

Cubase example: http://screencast.com/t/NzllYzY0

Ableton Live example: http://screencast.com/t/YTczODZlNDkt

(in my opinion, Ableton does it better because it zooms and pans the view, whereas cubase zooms and moves the edit cursor)

Main benefits:

1) Mouse dragging a lot more precise than mouse scroll-wheel (allows micro-adjustments)
2) Zoom around a specific location/measure/time.
3) Doesn't involve the edit cursor.
4) Mouse wheels not always available (laptop touch pads, graphics tablets etc)
5) Mouse wheel may be assigned to different function (e.g. scrolling)
6) Mouse wheel quality not consistent. Some are stepped, others are smooth. And some are crap like mine :(
