Default MIDI Electronic Pads

A lot of R&B drummers such as Aaron Spears, Teddy Campbell, and Gerald Heyward use these MIDI electronic pad things, such as this, http://www.musiciansfriend.com/produ...Pad?sku=449910, and I would like to buy something like it only cheaper.

Problem is, how am I going to be able to hear this when I'm playing? Can I amplify it somehow? How do I get sounds from it to the computer or recording thing. I have no clue about any of this stuff. I know just a tad about MIDI and how it works, but it's not all that helpful. And how do I mount it? I was thinking a snare stand, but what if I had to angle it?

Any advice is helpful, and thanks.

I don't think you'll find a more affordable sampler. Good luck with that.

You have to amplify it to hear it with your acoustic drums (given you aren't recording, in which case you can feed it directly into the mix). Also, I believe most snare stands tilt...
