    haha, just recently...i dont know how or why it took this long, ive had troubles with playing basslines to beats because the sample seems out of tune
    Im assuming this would be because of re-sampling, because time stretch and pitch shift (pitch shift when being time stretched i mean), would keep it on key im assuming
    but when i DO want to re-sample, what should I do about gettin the sample back in tune so I can lay basslines to samples that dont have basslines I can filter out?

    I am sure you are talking about a bass sample.To play a bass line I would
    think you would need it to be muilt-sampled.Each sample would have it's root
    note.Being able to play a semi tone either way.So you would have all the
    sample mapped out.Most samplers have a mapping option.

    A one shot bass sample will go out of tune fast.You will find alot of crap like that
    where people just cut up a few loops.Then they share it as a kits.
    Most of the kits people share on the net are crap.

    if the sample sounds hot why would you wanna change the pitch...

    you need 2 change the pitch on your keyboard if you have one.. or the pitch on the bass guitar and for that you need ears... i always try 2 match my notes that i sample to c flat... but i jus use my ears plus i have a benefit of having a partner with perfect pitch... but if the sample you got is a one hit... match it 2 c.

    Detune your bass notes, if u r using FL it has a lil ADD TO KEY NOB that sometimes works a bit its not a very good detuning method but if its only off a semi or so it will work

    I dont feel like any really answered the question
    There has to be a way to tune a sample to its root note, so the bass is out-of-key
    like lets say a sample sounds like C, so you play C, but its obviously off but not any other key
    is there anyway to TUNE the sample, or do i just de-tune the instrument till it fits? thats fuckin tiresome

    sometimea its tiresome.. but ask yourself is it worth if you gonna sell this shit 2 someone you gotta do what you gotta do...
    it seems 2 me you gonna have 2 fine tune the keybaord till it sounds right...

    and it not that hard there should be a global section 2 do it on...

    from what im digesting your saying it sound like there multi instruments going on in the sample if thats the case you gonna have 2 tune the leyboard..

    if not jus tune the note 2 match any of the 12 notes on the scale...

    your making it harder than it really is
