Hey guys..i've got a POD HD500 and I really like it. But im interested only in effects and Im not a big fan of those amp models in my pod. I want deep, heavy and lush effects and no boxy sounding stuff. Though pod has good effects, I was wondering if there's any other processor that can give me better effects than pod?? Pls suggest...
Please dont say-AXE FX or individual pedals...(my budget is only around 500$).

Um... 90% certain you can turn the amp models off on the HD500, can you not?

As for the effects, you're not going to get better than the HD500 without going for the things you said not to suggest. It's pretty much top of the line for multi FX.

+1 I am pretty sure you can disable the amp/cab modeling also

If he's going for the M5/9/13 he may as well stick with the HD500, no? they're the same effects

And the amp blocks can be On, Off (bypassed) or Disabled completely according to the manual.

Save yourself some cash and some hassle and learn your way around the HD500 properly, read through the manual and look at some youtube guides on using it.
