Akai S900 S950 users: Do your samples end up off tune?

I've had it for a about a year; and I've always noticed, that when I sample a new sample, and play it back, it plays back just a little off tune, maybe fractions of a semi-tone lower than the original.

ie: Let's say I sample a C note from one of my synths. The S950 will play it back maybe somewhere in between B and C; just fractions of a semitone. Or, say I sample a C minor; it'll kinda play it a little lower than a C.

Anyone else get this? If so, how much fine-tuning do you usually edit the sample, to compensate and get it back to what it's supposed to be? Just wondering.

I can't say I've ever noticed anything like that with my S900.

of cause its not supposed to do that. probably its what we call in germany a DAU problem. but also deffects are possible.. for example a damaged master keyboard that sends phantom pitch wheel data-

Maybe I'm trippin and it's just in my head, maybe from the bit crushed high frequencies ..I'll try it again. I've had 3 diff midi controllers since I've had the S950 too.

Just send a sine wave middle C to it then play the sample back through a tuner to see the pitching.
