Default Electric Drums Questions

Im new to drumming and due to living in an apartment complex I cant have acoustic drums.

Can someone explain exactly how electric drums will work. By that I mean, how do I get the songs onto the computer? Do I run a wire from the brain of drums, into computer?

How about to play the songs, do I upload them into the brain of the drums and just play with it?
Do I need to be near a computer, or can I play in garage, and somehow upload to comp/

I wanna invest in a good but used drum kit to learn on for the next year until I get my own house

First, you may still get complaints from neighbors if you play electronic drums in an apartment. The thumping of the pads (particularly the kick) will travel through most conventionally constructed walls. If you live on a ground floor, you might be OK.

I've had Three different Roland drum modules, and they all have headphone jacks plus a 1/4" audio plug input for an ipod or whatever line level audio device you have. There's also a volume adjustment for the audio mix in.

I have a Roland Vdrum and i play it in any time and nobody feel this, the bass pedal and cymbals sounds a little is not a problem. My neighbours never said that heard any noise about my drums, and with the sennheiser earphones i feel that i'm playing very loud with my acoustic kit, GO FOR ONE ELECTRONIC AND YOU'LL NEVER BE DISSAPOINTED.

If you get a set of Roland V-Drums, the hitting of your sticks against the pads won't be as loud as other electric drums, but they can be fairly pricey, so it's really up to you.
