I would imagine that the virtual capo feature is working by figuring out intervals assuming the guitar is in standard tuning. So even though you know you're playing detuned, the Variax in essence doesn't. So when you play the 10th fret on a detuned E-string, the note the Variax is sensing is Db, so that's telling the Variax, "he want's to detune the E-string by 3 half steps..." So if you detune an E-string that's already detuned a half-step down another three half steps, that would give you your C. So in actuality, what you'd really want to do to get the tuning you want is to play everything a half step up on the Variax when you set the alternate tuning.

Makes perfect sense , cheers phil .
Yeah thats what i've taken to doing to get the correct pitch , It can still confuse the guitar especially on the higher strings but it usually does as its told after a few attempts ..
