Not really. I also wouldn’t assume a Fairchild was used on “Come Together.”
The solid state consoles that were used for Abbey Road had a limiter/compressor on every channel. I actually saw them the year before and was utterly amazed because nobody in the U.S. had that.
At that time we were using a Neumann cutting system HF limiter in the mix room and an Ortofon in the mastering room. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were also using the Neumann, it sounded lots better than the Fairchild.
by multiplying the frequency of the audio signal into above-sonic level, performing the compression operation on that multiplied audio, and then bringing that compressed signal back down to the original frequency… then you can add a VERY low high-pass filter and clear out all the thumping.
