That effect is bars. The way to get that look is to copy it to individual strings and put a speed ramp (50% to 100%) while also making the effects staggered from the center string out.

I think too often people want new effects but they don't realize the power of the existing effects. There are so many settings to mess around with you can create some amazing effects with the simple effects that so many people over look.
