It took us some time to develop ZYLIA. Finally, we are almost there, we are very close to saying that we made it. We want to share with you some insights of this long but very exciting way of product development.
The beginning of ZYLIA
It all started as a research project in Poland in 2012. Piotr Szczechowiak and Tomasz Żernicki, ZYLIA co-founders, very quickly came up with an idea for a product applying innovative technology they were developing. Soon thereafter a product roadmap was defined and the ambition to develop a new innovative tool, with the potential to change how musicians and audio creators work, became a reality.

Hardware and software development
More than 10 generations of hardware prototypes were made. They all came through endless acoustic tests. Parallel to hardware development digital signal processing algorithms and software was developed.

Years of our expertise in audio processing, music recording, and hardware design has been packed into this unique and innovative device. At the end, we also paid a great attention to the final design of a product. It is also important to surround yourself with nice and good-looking things.
Every detail of the ZYLIA ZM-1 reflects the cutting-edge technology and simplicity with elegant product design.
