Why does my sample change pitch and time when I import it to OT from desktop?

Hi. Trying to get a backing track in to OT and play it at it’s proper pitch and tempo. I go to usb dic mode…import samples to a folder (tried putting the folder in both the audio pool and the project file) and when I assign a static machine to a track, it’s proper slot,find the sample and play it it’s slow and the tempo is off. Tried turning each track’s time stretch on/off …even just hitting function + yes from the folder the pitch and time are off? What am I missing?

Was your sample 44.1kHz or 48kHz?
