Default Drum Machine (or SW) FOR play-along practice

OK, I'm OK with general tech
but am not real up on these beaties -- I still use a mechanical metronome for cryin out loud

anyway - can anyone recommend a drum machine that's decently well set-up for practice play along (ie I can enter complex rhythms and work through them following the computer)
so
-Realistic sounds are not needed, I'm not looking to e-drum (I suppose, in a way, having not-too-realistic sounds could even make it easier to hear)
-decently large per-song memory (ie I'd hope to have the ability to have a large number of bars)
-step-entry available
- runtime visual representation would be REALLY nice (roland used to have those event grids IIRC)
-easy user input


so basically I feel like I'm swimming upstream a bit - looks like a lot of the stuff is "performance" oriented and has a lot of overhead with that stuff...ditto with electronic music production SW (lots of options for I'll never use and don't want to wade through)


any thoughts would be appreciated

If you have decent speakers on your PC you can use a simple online drum machine for free. http://www.onemotion.com/flash/drum-machine/
