Simple, the non-digital circuits were available and the chips like 9229/9216
were later. There were really three varients, for plain FM oneshots either
analog or digital did the job well enough. When DD (MFM) started to appear
along with then current drives That didn't work well enough (peak shift)
and PLLs became the solution then around 1981 people started to figure out
how to apply write precomp and digital data seps that were either counter
based or DPLL.

Most were soft. Once they started to become hard the media was showing

Either that a Dflop(74LS74), hex D-latch(74LS174) and 32x4 prom(74LS288).
