Minor Scales and Frequency Analysers - what note represents minor scales

Hi friends,

I have a question noobish regarding tuning drums and other sounds to suit the key of a track, using a frequency analysers as a guide (in my case, Ableton's Spectrum).

In particular, what frequency note do minor scales correspond with? To rephrase, which note in frequency analysers represent minor scales?

For example, I have track in the key of Gm, relative minor of Bb. So, what note should I be aiming fro in the frequency analyser/spectrum when tuning my drum etc?

is the tonic note of a scale the note i should tune other sounds to match?

I would absolutely love some assistance!
