TC Helicon PERFORM-V
The Perform-V Vocal Processor by TC-Helicon creates vocal harmonies based on the pitch of your voice, with real-time pitch correction. It can detect the key either through its RoomSense mic or via an auxiliary music player. The Perform-V has seven editable effects, a microphone preamp with phantom power, a one-snap connection to your microphone stand, and large buttons which make it easy to sing and call up effects during live performances. Its Anti-Feedback function is designed to react to room properties and decrease levels of problematic frequencies.
Parameters can be controlled using the Central Encoder Knob, remote functions from your Smartphone, the TC-Helicon MP-75 and MP-76 microphones, and/or footswitches (all available separately). After specifying the volume and style of onboard effects, you can store them in one of the three preset banks.
With the Tone control button you can add a factory-set mix of EQ, Compression, De-Ess, and Gate onto your main output, which can eliminate low-frequency mud, large dynamic shifts, and sibilance, as well as unwanted mic gain while you're not singing. The Talk button bypasses the effects, while keeping the Tone function engaged, for clear communication with your audience.
The Perform-V has editable remote presets accessed through the Preset app, which has up to seven effects with four additional modifiers: Harmony Level, HardTune Gender, EQ Filter, and µMod Level. These presets can be imported into the Perform-V and edited on the fly via the HIT function. The echo effect can be synched to the timing of the music through the tap-tempo control.
When not using a connected mic, you can use the onboard mic and monitor yourself through the headphone output. USB connection gives you access to free VoiceSupport firmware for managing and downloading presets, etc. The Perform-V Vocal Processor is best suited for live performance.
