You still need some logic operators to count the step in the sequence, etc. I think
the only ICs in the entire Moog modular line were in the 960 sequencer (perhaps in
the sequential switch too). These are very simple gate logic chips but that was all
that really was in ICs in the 60s.

So, while the output is analog, the control of an analog sequencer still requires
some digital logic.
