TC Helicon Perform VK Vocal Processor for Keyboards
SOUNDS TO MAKE YOU STAND OUT
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.
Perform-VK lets you focus entirely on your love of singing and keyboard while it automatically handles the polish and production values. What formerly required a skilled producer or a dedicated sound engineer can now be set up in seconds, interact with your keyboard, and offer the professional vocal sound that is key to an unforgettable performance.
HARMONIZE YOUR SOUND
Whether you use audio or MIDI from your keyboard, our vocal effects engine captures your chord information and creates up to two voices of real time harmony to accompany you. No musical theory required!
If you like to get more complex vocal output, MIDI note driven harmony is also available with direct control of up to 8 simultaneous harmony voices.
SIMPLICITY IS KEY
Perform-VK pairs perfectly with your keyboard or stage piano to give you stand out vocal effects, mixing and USB multi track audio in one small, easy to use unit.
CREATIVE CONTROL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Perfrom-VK allows you to take control of your sound, giving you the power to simulate a physical space with REVERB or put it on repeat with ECHO simply by hitting a button.
IN THE STUDIO OR ON STAGE
When it’s time to hit the studio, Perform-VK’s 4 in, 8 out USB audio capability gives you all the flexibility you need to create great recordings in no time. Simultaneously capture dry and wet versions of your vocals, along with harmony voices and your keyboard audio. You can go straight from songwriting to production in much less time.
POLISH YOUR PERFORMANCE
Add instant clarity with the TONE button. Adaptive EQ, compression, gating and de-ess provide you with professionally polished vocals that ensure you always cut through the mix.
Turn on Anti-feedback and your Perform-VK will be on the prowl for pesky speaker squealing, knocking it out quickly if it does occur.
The PITCH button provides a helping hand by pushing you to the nearest half-note with subtle pitch-correction.
SET AND FORGET
Perform-VK removes much of the complexity involved with most audio gear. In addition to Tone and Anti-Feedback the Automatic Microphone Input Gain means that setup is as straightforward as plugging in a mic and holding the SET button while you sing. Boom, ready to rock. It even clips onto your mic stand right where you need it.

JUST BEAM IT
Out of the box it’s easy to dial in a timeless, premium vibe using the onboard Double, Reverb, and Echo sounds.
Go deeper with the free Perform-VK app for your smartphone.
Pick and choose from a library of pre-made sounds including HardTune, harmony, megaphone, and instantly transform your sound. Simply “beam” the sounds directly from your phone to the PRESET buttons and you’re good to go – no need for accessories or even a wireless or Bluetooth connection!
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.
Perform-V will evolve with you. VoiceSupport, our free desktop app, gives you the latest firmware updates and maintains your personal database of presets that you have beamed. All you need is a Mac or Windows computer with a USB input.
PRACTICE WITHOUT A MIC
When you're not beaming presets to it, the embedded RoomSenseTM mic doubles as a handy vocal input for headphone sessions when the ideas come faster than getting up and plugging in your regular mic.
