Is there an option on Kontakt 5 that imports audio in its sampled key instead of defaulting to a root of C??

I want to put drums in key but find it hard when everything is automatically put at C. When ya tone deaf its hard to work out ha

Also is there a way to find put what key a sample has been recorded in?

Use a spectrum analyzer or Melodyne to find out the key of the drum hit, then change the root note in Kontakt to that.

I usually just loop some clean instrument alone to repeat a few different octaves of the root key of the tune (for example Tune is in F# Minor: F#4, F#3, F#4, F#5).

Then open up the drum hit (bass stab, sampled pad, whatever) in question and make a simple loop for the hit over the F# octave thing and tune the root note by ear. It's hard when you try to tune sounds that are playing all over so stripping it all down to 2 elements when tuning works well.
