Here’s one article that every guitarist should read especially those who love to use a guitar pedal in every performance.
Do you know that guitar effect pedals, which come in many different shapes and sizes, were first commercially produced standalone as effects unit in 1948 branded as DeArmond Trem Trol 800. Bo Diddley was the first artist credited to have used it. The gadget produced a tremolo by passing an instrument’s electrical signal through a water-based electrolytic fluid.
In 1958, the latest guitar pedals are the WEM COPICAT Super IC-300 which makes delay and echo and the DeArmond 610 which was used by the legendary Jimmy Page on Brenda Lee’s “Is It True.”
For years later, the band Ventures was the first to use homemade distortion fuzz box for their song “The 2000 Pound Bee”. It was also in 1962 that the first transistorized guitar effect was introduced. It was called as Maestro Fuzz Tone pedal, the first distortion based pedal available to the public, famously used by in Rolling Stones’ “Can’t Get No Satisfaction.”
In 1978, guitar and accessories manufacturer Boss presented to the market the DS-1 distortion pedal. In 1982, the same company produced SCC700 that allows 7 compact effects to be controlled with one single switch press.
The digital guitar pedals continued to improve in quality and popularity in the 90s thanks to the success of the charismatic guitarist Kurt Cobain. The interest on the product continued to boom in the 21st century notably the Electro-Harmonix POG used by Jack White of the White Stripes and the Ibanez TS808 Vintage Tube Screamer Reissue which was originally a trademark of Stevie Ray Vaughan, a great American musician and record producer.

Are you tired of getting the "usual" service from your internet providers?
Imagine paying in full and on time but what you receive in return is slow and unreliable connection. No one deserves such service, right?
The good news, such dilemma has now a solution... and you can kick your snail-like broadband internet because Converge ICT Solutions, Inc., a complete ICT solutions provider in the Philippines, just elevated Pinoys’ Internet experience with the launch of FiberX, iBIZ, Converge Enterprise and FiberXtreme.
The company also announced further expansion plans and continued strengthening of its fiber optic network. At present, Converge already laid out more than 6,000 kilometers of its fiber optic reach and is still growing. It is already servicing clients from as far north as Baguio and further down south to Batangas.
|Converge Brand Ambassador Janeena Chan during the launch of FiberX at Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas today.|
Here in Metro Manila, Converge’s pure fiber optic offering has already covered cities such as Valenzuela and Las Piñas and Muntinlupa cities down south of the metropolis. It plans to further expand its reach by putting up networks in Nasugbu, Batangas and even far north such as San Fernando in La Union.
Eventually, fiber broadband offerings will soon be enjoyed nationwide, according to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony Uy.
The perennial problem of Filipinos in dealing with slow Internet connection will now be a thing of the past, thanks to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.’s offerings that bring fast, affordable, reliable, and “best-of-breed” pure fiber-optic connectivity to power the Internet usage of home, micro, small-, medium- and large-scale enterprise users.
“With Converge fiber broadband products, whether you are at home or at the office or your place of business, your Internet experience will surely be made better. And the best part of it is that it costs the same as your DSL connection, but made faster,” Uy explains further.
But the best part is that there is “NO DATA CAP” in Internet access unlike those offered by other service providers where there’s a limit to data allowance.
“We thought that what’s the use of having fast Internet connection if there is a limit to data access? With FiberX, there is no more ‘data cap’ to Internet usage. We feel we will just be short-changing our customers if we put a limit to their Internet usage,” says Jesus Romero, Chief Operating Officer of Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.

Aside from bringing faster Internet to Filipinos, Romero said they will limit the existing difficulties customers experience when applying for an Internet connection. “Part of the experience is to make sure that customers will not wait long to get connected. We have made the application process simple, easy and fast. No more hassles, no more waiting,” Romero adds.
Initially, FiberX is offered in three different plan types for a variety of home users depending on their Internet usage. FiberX 1500 comes with a burstable speed of up to 25Mbps, FiberX2500 at up to 50Mbps while FiberX 3500 offers connectivity of up to 100Mbps. With pure end-to-end fiber technology that’s light years better than traditional Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), FiberX will surely enhance everyone’s online experience with better speed, larger bandwidth and consistent performance for either work or play. But for those who want even faster connectivity, there’s FiberXtreme that comes in burstable speeds of 300Mbps and 500Mbps and priced competitively at P4,500 and P7,000, respectively.

And for larger enterprises, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. offers “Converge Enterprise” that comes with scalable Internet connection of up to 1Gbps, an IP MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), Disaster Recovery, Managed Data Center Services, and other benefits for more efficient business operations.

Global gaming PC brand Predator continues to overpower the competition in the local gaming PC market with the opening today of High Grounds Café, the country’s first and only fully branded gaming café.
Operated by the country’s top gaming café brand TheNet.com (TNC), High Grounds Café will definitely capture the attention of both gaming enthusiasts and professionals alike. It is fully armed to the teeth with top-of-the-line and powerful Predator gaming PCs in a gaming environment that’s unlike any other in the country today.
Located amid this city’s entertainment capital, High Grounds Café featured only the best gaming desktops courtesy of Predator, with 110 units of the Predator G1 (GTX 1080) and Predator G3 (GTX 1060) on hand for hours and hours of playing.
The Predator G1 squeals with beastly bravado that suits today’s brawny gamers with its ultra-powerful Intel Core™ i7 6700 processor (8M Cache, up to 4.00GHz) inside and 32GB DDR4 2133MHz memory for enough show and swagger and truly rock the house with its fiery performance regardless of gaming title while the 3TB 3.5-inch 7200 RPM and 256 GB M.2 2280 Solid State Drive combination is a force to reckon with in terms of storage capability. For visual clarity that lets you get your head—and eyes—into the game, trust the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5 graphics card to deliver the goods when it comes to an awesome and immersive game experience.
The Predator G3, meanwhile, boasts of the same overclocked Intel i7 processor for that ferocious roar in every game, powerful 16GB DDR4 2133MHz memory and 2TB 3.5-inch and 128GB Solid State Drive combination for the utmost in storage capacity and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with 3GB GDDR5 graphics card that lets you stun your enemies with out-of-this-world graphics and dominate the esports scene.
Pair these two gaming monsters with the 24-inch full HD Predator XB241H monitors that support NVIDIA G sync technology to boost your game day with its no-tear and less-stutter performance for fast-paced games and ferocious visuals that will certainly stun any onlooker.
Thus, expect screams, shrieks of delight in conquest and supremacy to rock the High Grounds Cafe as hundreds of players can be accommodated there at any given time. Gamers can also enjoy glorious snacks and other meal-time favorites during breaks from their game triumphs so they can recharge their batteries and be ready to dominate the competition again.
The opening of High Grounds Café is also the perfect battleground for the launch of the Predator 21 X which gives gaming pros and tech enthusiasts the best and most fearsome gaming laptop ever. Targeting the well-heeled and loaded tech lovers out there who will spare no peso in getting the most advanced and powerful gaming rig around, the Predator 21 X is a perfect fit for gamers who seek a whole new level of immersion in terms of sound and visuals, interaction, cooling and power efficiency never seen before in any gaming laptop.
The Predator 21 X is a humongous beast of a laptop that comes with a robust 21-inch-wide FHD (2560 x 1080) IPS screen with 2000R curvature for unbelievable visuals, 7th Generation Intel Core™ i7 processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 SLI with 16GB GDDR5X graphics card coupled with 64GB of DDR4 system memory, plus Acer ColorBlast™ technology for the clearest and most abundant colors ever to reach a laptop.
TNC.com owner Eric Redulfin said High Grounds Café breaks the barriers in what used to be Internet-surfing-only cyber cafes. “The environment now is totally different in terms of cyber cafés. What used to be just for Internet surfing and browsing metamorphosed into complete full-fledged gaming centers. Of course the Internet is still there but gaming now takes the spotlight and the attention of game-loving and esports aficionados in the country.”
Redulfin bared that High Grounds Café will also be the perfect breeding ground of future Filipino esports stars who can give esports players from other countries a run for their money. “The Philippines is a young entrant in the global esports arena. Compared to other gaming countries, I could say we’re behind but that was 2-5 years ago. Now, even if we started competing only last year in tournaments abroad, we gained much attention already with the recent triumph of the TNC Pro Team during WESG,” he said.
The TNC Pro Team, bannered by members Marco Polo “Raven” Fausto, Carlo “Kuku” Palad, Samson Solomon “Sam_H” Hidalgo, Timothy “Tims” Randrup, and Ryo “ryOyr” Hasegawa, made history by becoming the first Filipino grand champions at the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) 2016 Defense of the Ancients (DotA) 2 competition. The team took home a rich total prize pot of US$800,000 (roughly Php40 million) after defeating the Cloud9 team from Denmark in a heart-pounding finals match.
Redulfin and team manager Paulo Sy both admitted it’s tough to maintain a competitive team that should be well trained and funded. But with the arrival of the Predator desktops at High Grounds, they know that more and more esports “athletes” or gamers will have full access to powerful PCs that can deliver the best—and only the best—experience in leisure and competitive gaming.
“The players train for 8-10 hours every day and they need the best PCs to help them visualize and conceptualize strategies for every game. With their power and brawn, the Predator desktops are a big help in our aim to promote esports and hopefully, we can find the next best players that will bring pride to our country in future esports competitions abroad and help promote TNC as well,” declares both Redulfin and Sy.
“We are glad that TNC decided to use Predator desktops as their only gaming rigs at High Grounds Café. It just goes to show that Predator remains to be the only preferred gaming PCs by serious esports competitors who only want the best with the most premium components found inside, those that won’t conk out in the heat of the game any time of the day. Esports is serious stuff and is ultra-competitive that needs only the best PC for gameplay, and Predator is definitely it, without question,” explains Clark Gurden, Predator Brand Ambassador, Predator Headquarters.
For his part, Jerome Matti, NVIDIA Consumer Sales Lead, Philippines, said: “We build the ultimate platform for gamers. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and 1060 GPUs are based on our most advanced Pascal architecture that delivers amazing speed and power efficiency, plus innovative new gaming technologies. And our advanced G-SYNC monitors are designed to give gamers incredibly smooth, tear-free gameplay. Together, they redefine what makes a perfect platform for the new generation of content. And with Acer’s exquisite craftsmanship, we are able to bring the world’s most advanced platform to the Philippines’ biggest iCafe, High Grounds powered by TNC. We are thrilled to see more and more GeForce PC gamers in the Philippines!”

Today, AMD(NASDAQ: AMD) announced Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology, the next major milestone in delivering smooth gameplay and advanced pixel integrity to gamers, with planned availability to consumers in 1H 2017.
Qualifying FreeSync™ 2 monitors will harness low-latency, high-brightness pixels, excellent black levels, and a wide color gamut to display High Dynamic Range (HDR) content.[i] In addition, all FreeSync™ 2 monitors will have support for Low Framerate Compensation (LFC). With Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology, gamers can enjoy a complete plug-and-play HDR gaming experience, avoiding the need to tweak settings in software or on the monitor.
“Gamers have spoken and they’ve made FreeSync™ the overwhelming choice and definitive industry standard for smooth, stutter-free gaming,” said Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager of gaming, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology is the first of its kind that combines HDR support with dynamic refresh rate technology, and does it in a seamless, plug-and-play manner that improves gaming quality automatically when the right content is present.”
Current HDR transport formats were designed primarily for movie content displayed on televisions with tone mapping handled by the displays, often leading to higher-than-acceptable latency for PC gaming. AMD’s new API for FreeSync™ 2 offers a lower-latency alternative that shifts the workload to the powerful pipeline of a Radeon™ GPU, allowing the game to tone map directly to the display’s target luminance, contrast, and color space. Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology offers over 2x the brightness and color volume over sRGB.[ii]
"Samsung has always embraced FreeSync™ technology, which is why we partnered with AMD from the beginning,” said Andrew Sivori, vice president, consumer IT marketing at Samsung. “We know gamers deserve the absolute best in smooth gaming experiences, and we're thrilled to see AMD further improving on that technology. FreeSync™ 2 combines the richest, highest quality pixels provided by HDR, with the stutter-free, tear-free gaming FreeSync™ is known for. We're excited to collaborate with AMD to implement FreeSync™ 2 technology in Samsung display products in the near future."
FreeSync™ and FreeSync 2 technologies will co-exist to offer a wide variety of advanced displays to gamers. All FreeSync-compatible Radeon™ GPUs will support FreeSync™ 2 technology, including the Radeon™ RX series GPUs based on the Polaris architecture which also supports DisplayPort[iii] HBR3 and enables UltraHD resolution beyond 60Hz. Multiple display vendors are actively evaluating several upcoming products for FreeSync™ 2 qualification.
