    My drummer just got an electronic drum kit for practicing and he wants to be able to do basic recordings with its midi interface and all that and was asking for recommendations on programs he could use. Is there something really basic and free out there that I could recommend to him for just recording with his drum set?

    "basic recordings with its midi interface "

    Sound recorder does not do MIDI bouldersoundguy. but here is another almost just as annoying thing to do when someone asks a question and that is to ask another question :)

    My question is how do you plan to get the midi hooked up to your computer? When you answer that question, the rest may well fall in line.

    You have an interface capable of MIDI, yes?

    He could get an inexpensive midi/usb interface ($20-30) and then a copy of Audacity or Reaper for a sequencer.
    If he wanted to get a full audio/midi interface then you could record other instruments too...but maybe this ia all he wants!

    Given the lack of details I figured he meant the sound module for the kit. Recording the MIDI sequence doesn't sound like a "really basic and free" solution for someone who just wants to hear back a practice session, so even if that's what he meant he may find my suggestion useful.
