"Keyboards and synths have always played a huge role in Alan’s music, and many Motif sounds are essential to performing his classic hits with the Alan Parsons Live Project, as he proceeded to sit at the Motif XS to demonstrate. He punched up the factory patch Nu Phasing, telling us “This is the Clav sound I use on ‘I Robot.’” Switching to Sweet Flute, he said, “Here’s a sort of signature sound from ‘Pyschobabble’ off of Eye in the Sky,” then played the 12-note chiff flute riff that famously answers the vocal. Of course, his biggest hit was that same album’s title track, led off by Wurlizter electric piano chords. “On the record, of course, it was an actual Wurlitzer, but the sound in the Motif is virtually indistinguishable.”"
