Alternative ways to use zoom in and zoom out

I don't like the fact that to use zoom in and zoom out there are different key strokes.

Zoom in: Shift and +

Zoom out: -

Is there a way to change this? And is there a way to map midi to these functions?

    I used a free third party program called "BetterTouchTool"

    It's really easy to use. 

    I programmed it so that when I held down option and scrolled up on the trackpad (Like Logic Pro's zoom) it would type the keystroke "shift =" (which is+).  I also programmed it so that holding option and scrolling down typed the keystroke "-". 

    There is another program (not free but totally awesome) called "keyboard maestro".  I have programmed this so that I can show/hide the detail with a single key instead of the three key chain "command option L".  Also various other workflow enhancing macros.

    Please note- these programs are EASY to use.  It's a total no brainer.  No tutorial. Bang.  Done.

    I am using Bome MIDI Translator which is an awesome app for assisting with everything. One thing it can do is take a keystroke input (as well as MIDI) and convert it to multiple keys or MIDI events out. I use this to create "macro" keys on my keyboard numberpad for these tasks.
