I hope I can explain what I am trying to accomplish...

I have a three minute sample I want to import into OpenMPT and have it play sort of in the background, but I want the speed of the sample to play in sync with the speed of the whole module so it sounds like it is part of the song rather than two songs playing at the same time, in other words, I would like to adjust the speed of the three minute sample to match the tempo or speed of the rest of the module...

Hope I was clear enough...

Find the tempo of your original song and then do pitch/tempo lock.

Free software to find the tempo.

... seriously? This is an excerpt of the OpenMPT manual, and the text, as the heading suggests, explains what the "Pitch/Tempo lock" field in the instrument tab does. You first find out the real BPM of your sample (I guess Rakib wanted to post a link to a software that can do this, but you surely can find such a software using your favourite search engine), and then enter this BPM count into the Pitch/Tempo lock field in the instrument editor. This field is only available in the MPTM format.

Jojo said it, looks like I forgot to post a link to a random software that finds your tempo, there are many programs that do the trick.
