You really don't need any device for alternative tunings, just tune standard and go from there. You might wanna try a site like this to tune, then harmonize to whatever key you're trying to tune to.
That should help

after a lot of testing around i finally tuned to Eb. I mean its a hlf tone away from d in wich killswitch engage plays and a half tone away from standard e wich metallica plays in. And slyer uses mainly Eb. So i have best of all 3 worlds. And for the killswitch songs i just drop the low string to C#

Standard E tuning and B tuning. Why? E because I like to pretend that I'm Randy Rhoads. B because I like to pretend I'm in Carcass and Impaled. Never dropped though, I like the power chord shape as is.

Standard, for the sole purpose that it has become what I am accustomed to

Standard E, Drop Eb ( I just drop the E string to Eb, meaning I would play powerchords the same way you would finger a flatted-fifth interval in standard tuning. For old Cannibal Corpse and Slayer it's quite ideal ), and Drop D. One of these days I'm getting a 7 string and I will just keep it in Drop A.

I use drop D sometimes mostly because I started writing a song, but then realized that with the key it was in I needed to drop it (or transpose it higher and make it sound like balls) but I prefer to use standard mostly because.. well... it's standard!
