It's been about 5 days with my [Akai] MPC3000 and I am still learning by trial and errors with no manual

I am learning bits and pieces from this forum, video tutorial and on my own

my question is: is there a video manual out there that you guys would recommend? (if it exist)

the only one that comes to mind is the one from Sample Kings:

I do find myself learning alot more from watching others

I did the samething when I bought myself the 8 hour video manual for the [Ensoniq] ASR-10 and trust me, I learned
alot and more

thank you

Everything that sample kings is connected to is dumpster juice.

I know this is an old post but my answer is to help others who have questions about the MPC3000/LE Help key...

This is true on AKAI OS 3.16 and older OS versions...
"The HELP key
Whenever this key is pressed and held down, the contents of the
screen will be temporarily replaced by text explaining the function
of the data field where the cursor is currently located. To return to
the previous screen, release the HELP key. There is a different help
screen for every data field of every screen in the MPC3000."

If you have the Vailixi OS 3.5 installed and press the Help key, the text message to explain a function has been removed. If I remember correctly, it just shows a blank screen...
"Redundant functions removed
Due to the limited memory space available for code in the MPC3000,
unfortunately, in order to implement the many features and improvements
you see above it seemed fit to remove some redundant functionality.
response routines removed.
- Removal of these lesser used features has allowed code space to be
recovered for the implementation of new features"
