I got it! This morning I reflashed the guitar (yesterday I had reflashed my Pod xt live), saving the models already loaded yesterday. I saved them because they were showing the alt tuning set up when I loaded them in the editor but the sound changes were not being applied to the guitar.
On the guitar I selected the Custom I position on the knob. Then went to the editor. The first model was in the edit window with the alt tuning reflected at the bottom of the edit window. I pressed Enable. I made sure to wait for the change to be loaded and for the yellow exclamation mark to appear above beside the first model button. Then I selected the button near the top of the Edit window for the second model and repeated the Enable step for each model in the Custom 1 group. That enabled the alt tuning for the Custom 1 models. When I had changed all five models in the Custom I group I went to the tone locker and hit the sync button at the bottom. All five models were saved to the guitar in about 15 seconds. I sync'ed them one group at a time (e.g., Custom 1, T-Model, etc.) because I had had problems yesterday with some attempted updating timing out before all the changes were made.
I did the same with each of the other model groups, syncing one at a time to the guitar.
What a relief. I have been working on Workbench and connection problems for three days. One of the main reasons I bought the Variax was the alt tuning function, since all 550 pieces of music I play are written down a full step and it just makes everything easier.
If anyone else is having similar problems I would be happy to try to help. Thanks, Scott
