As long as you just want to sync it for a specific pitch, it’s pretty simple.
Just use the bottom ruler in the sample editor. (Notice how it changes if you adjust the BPM of the song, or the transpose/finetune of the sample). Set it so that your desired pitch is triggered when playing a C-4 on your computer keyboard. Now pad the beginning of your sample with silence so that the desired “hit point” lines up perfectly to one of the x.x.0 numbers on the bottom ruler. (optional, if you don’t wanna do the maths needed to line it up with delay effects)
Depending on what your LPB is, it will amount to x number of lines. Now you’ll be able to trigger the sample x lines before you want the “hit”, without using any delay effect. And you’ll even see the exact position of the hit in the sample editor if you zoom it while looking at the ruler.
OK, it’s a bit tricky to explain in text, but if you do some trial&error investigation to what the bottom ruler means I’m pretty sure that you’ll understand how to do it.
