    Big Joe,

    According to the V-Type operating instructions manual, it "shifts the centre frequency at which the mid control works at, upwards to around 2kHz." The unengaged position (pushed in) gives a slight mid cut at about 1kHz. I typically use the engaged position and it sounds great.

    I hope this helps.

    Actually, I hate the "shift" position. I never use it.

    Use and out.
    The Vtype happens to be my favorite preamp and recording DI at the moment.

    I find it quite noticeable , when pulling the midshift on.
    I recommend sending it off .

    Mine is going in for a overhaul shortly.
    I have noticed some problems.

    I find it cuts more when it is engaged. Although it can sound a tiny bit "honky" if you go to wild.
