If you're serious about singing, you'll find that sounding your best is about more than talent or vocal technique. Its 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.

JUST BEAM IT
Out of the box its easy to dial in a timeless, premium vibe using the onboard Double, Reverb, and Echo sounds. However, the real fun starts when you download the free Perform-V app for your smartphone.

Choose from hundreds of pre-made sounds including HardTune, harmony, megaphone, and instantly recreate the vibe of your favorite artist or musical style. Simply beam the sounds directly from your phone to the PRESET buttons and youre good to go no need for accessories or even a wireless or Bluetooth connection! Its pretty much magic, and youll just have to try it to believe it.

MAKE IT A HIT
Most presets you beam or download come with a "HIT" function. HIT helps you build intensity into your performances by adding additional layers to the preset by simply pressing the preset button a second time (it turns blue instead of green). This is ideal for creating striking choruses or highlighting a certain phrase.

NO WORRIES
Everything about Perform-V is designed to remove the typical obstacles that singers face while leaving the all-important creative control to you. This includes the option for adding subtle PITCH correction as well as ANTI-FEEDBACK, which protects you from accidental screeches, so you can sing your heart out anywhere on stage.

I got the Perform V as a Christmas present, funnily enough my wife thought she'd improve my vocals, (that ought to tell me something). First thing I did was reach for the sunglasses before I figured out how to dim the LED display. Yikes that was bright. Downloaded the App, and went through its paces. I think it has some limited application for a live performance, I'd have liked to see more memory slots available, but for the price I am not grumbling. Nice job on the tone and pitch correction, and the app is easy to use. Sounds a bit like a fax machine or an early internet dial up on steroids, but it flashes right up, and you are good to go with the app. My keyboard already has vocal harmony, I discovered, and its pretty good. The Perform V does add some range though, and for this I believe its a keeper. Good quality solid construction and easy to connect up to your PA and Mic setup through XLR cables. I liked the ability to play mp3 backing tracks through the unit, helps for practice. Loved the mic stand clip, holds the unit snugly and it does not bother you to operate even if you have a guitar and want to change harmonies between verse and chorus. Pretty easy, just as long as you remember which of the 3 buttons you assigned a particular effect to. If I am brutally honest I truly wanted and probably do have a need for the VoiceLive Extreme, as it does have some major benefits over the Perform V. I likely will take it on the road with me since you can use the inbuilt mic for a guitar and use headphones to get your effects dialed in. I am pretty impressed with TC Helicon as a Company, they have some nice little tutorial videos that can help a novice to negotiate their products. I've not been able to surprise myself yet with the Perform V, and it's nice to be pleasantly surprised from time to time. I will keep using it and maybe I will like it some more than I do already.

It is not actual a toy, and it works great with good effects. Beaming is just like a breeze. However, it would be nice to be optional to control the brightness of the panel since it is really too bright for indoor use.
