Last updated on April 13, 2024 9:20 am Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the TC Helicon Perform-V Vocal Processor, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

If you’re serious about singing, you’ll find that sounding your best is about more than talent or vocal technique. It’s about taking what is unique about your voice and using the right tools to make it stand out – whether you’re live at a venue, a radio session, recording at home, or uploading to YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook, Instagram, or any of your other favorite social channels.

This is where PERFORM-V shines. What formerly required a skilled producer or a dedicated sound engineer can now be set up in seconds and offer the professional vocal sound that is key to an unforgettable performance. The beauty of PERFORM-V is that it lets you focus entirely on your love of singing and creativity while it automatically handles the polish and production values.

Crystal clarity for every word is the true power of PERFORM-V. It understands what suits your voice and shapes it for your audience. Pressing the TONE button automatically takes care of the business of making you sound better. If there is one magic trick inside PERFORM-V, this is it.

Onboard are all those exciting sounds that captivate your listeners, create dazzling effects, or add lyrical emphasis – just like those used by every popular artist before you. The DOUBLE, REVERB and ECHO controls give you fast access to all the classic sounds that make good singers great and they’re yours to explore.

Pros & Cons


  • Handy build
  • Affordably priced
  • Incredibly reliable
  • Favorable customer reviews
  • Worth the investment
  • Excellent sound output

  • The tone function is fixed rather than changeable.
    There appears to be no way to prevent the aux input signal from reaching the output if you simply want to use it as a pitch reference.

Our Verdict

This is considered to be the company’s most user-friendly and straightforward vocal processor to date, with tried-and-true effects (four reverbs, four echoes, and two doubling options) available at the touch of a button. Intelligent Tone features (adaptive EQ, compression, de-essing, and gating), automatic mic input gain, pitch correction, and anti-feedback algorithms are also available.

If you require additional vocal sounds, you can obtain them from the TC-Helicon website and ‘beam’ them to the Perform-V via your smartphone. The gadget is intended to be clipped directly onto a microphone stand.
