TC-Helicon Perform-VG Vocal Processor
The TC Helicon Perform VG is a vocal processor that's meant to provide smart harmonies and pitch correction for singers who play guitar.
It does this by analyzing the chords you are playing and formulating harmonies as you move from chord to chord.
Instead of the usual pedal form factor, this mounts on a mic or guitar stand for easy access on stage.
There are also other essential effects that can be accessed, including auto-chromatic pitch correction, reverb and echo, compression, adaptive EQ, de-essing and gating.
It also comes with anti-feedback processor when you need to go loud on stage.
Another cool feature of the TC-Helicon Perform-VG is the BodyRez guitar effect, which helps improve the overall sound of your acoustic guitar.

The TC-Helicon Perform VG's distinctive stand mounted profile and extensive functionality are its most commended features. Singers are especially fond of switching between different harmony styles while performing. The built-in guitar effects are also well appreciated, along with the overall sound quality of the unit.
A few users gave slightly lower scores because they find it hard to change settings while playing guitar. They wish that it came with a footswitch controller, which many report to increase the fun you can have with the vocal processor.
For those who don't mind using their hands when fiddling with their vocal effects.
