Thanks, Chris
My U195 is my most-used vocal mic, and I use the FAT switch in conjunction with the HPF for most singers. The effect, to my ears, is to emphasize the fundamental of the voice in a way that gives the track more "elbow room" in the mix. I can then usually leave the low end pretty much alone and use EQ to fine-tune the midrange. This works better for some singers than others--sometimes it can get overly creamy--but most often it's a good thing.
