"In Line" or "Dual Path" consoles just moved the tape monitor form a seperate section (usually to the right of the master section), to the channel strips. This makes it easier for the engineer to stay in one position.

My personal feeling is that this occurred during the time when more engineers were taking on producer roles too.
