I downloaded some 909 kit from analoguesamples.com and was dropping in a snare and noticed that the pitch was dropped to the point where the snare (when I hit it in the browser it sounded great) but when it was hit in the step sequencer it sounded dead (pitched lower???)

I am pretty new to all this and just getting up and going, but this little fact is kinda bumming me out. Anyone else know of this, had this problem and know a solution?
