Not really. The Pitch Glide FX works best as a monophonic effect - one string/note (or perhaps a single sustained chord) at a time. It is simply not going to perform well as an alternate tuning method for regular playing.

The Pitch Glide is a fairly faithful model of the DigiTech Whammy pedal, which is 24 years old now. It couldnt track multiple notes at one times at all, so neither can the Pitch Glide. The way it acts when you give it more than one note at a time is how players like David Gilmour, Dimebag, Trey Anastasio, Buckethead, etc get some of their crazy sounds, so thats a good thing overall.
There are some very good droptuning pedals out there though, and the Peavey Auto-tune guitar works with the HD series pretty well.
