Old Studio Signal Chain(?)

Hey, here's a bit of a no brainer,

back in the day - how were studios set up in terms of signal.

For example, you've got a neve console - an MCI tape machine - and a slew of outboard gear

What was the traditional way of wiring a studio up?

The chain was: mic into console, into recorder. If the console didn't have built-in eq, then it would be patched in if needed. Outboard consisted of a limiter and maybe a chamber. Or a plate verb. Later, by mid seventies, the harmonizer arrived ..some used it, some didn't. Some just used it to correct an off note. Thats about it.

Things like pultec's - various old compressors and limiters

were those hit after the fact from the tape machine and thrown back onto tape? Say what you will, there's a beauty in that kind of simplicity. Less headaches.
