how do you do the studdering Zomby/ sandstorm synth effect in reason?

I hear this effect allot in zombys track like in the lead that comes in at :18 in this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbU0KuXSopU where the note cuts in and out in a rhythmic fashion.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to how I can achieve this? Is it some sort of gating going on?

All help is very nice as always!

Sidechain compression will give you that effect. Sidechain is when you use the signal from one source to trigger a compressor that in turn will affect a second signal. In this case maybe he had some hi hat patterns or something programmed as his sidechain input and that gave teh synth that stuttering affect. Do a quick fourum search, should be plenty of info. Cheers.

That effect is pretty trivial to create with the Alligator unit. It's just a patterned gate. The sidechain compression approach is also a way to do it, and may help understand exactly what's happening, but using the Matrix or Alligator is going to be easier.

The video on this page will make you say, "Ah HAH!" :-)

Definitely Alligator. That's not side chain compression.

Just create one after your pads and start playing while auditioning patches. - you're bound to find something you like. I'd recommend watching the many Alligator tutorials as well.
