Better than expected!
First of all, I am very happy with the exercise files. These provide ableton drum kits and other resources that I was happy to have. The tutorial itself is also very good, but you might also want to pick the course "Creating Realistic MIDI Drums" which covers a few details and tricks not covered here about velocity. My only complain would be that I wished there was some information and tips on how to create an entire drum track and not only just 1-2 bars of drums.

Not bad, can be useful
Not bad, can be useful and inspiring to get some nice groove out of Ableton and learning how to program them. Unfortunately to get all the Drum Kits working and use well the downloadable material you need to have Sampler Instrument from Ableton which is quite expensive. Otherwise you get only a couple of kits working, like me.
