...well, "strictly" is kind of loose, really. I mean, there's this tune, but that trumpet is pretty much impossible on real hardware without keeping the CPU in a 100% busy loop (the VRC6 has no envelope hardware so the required volume changes have to be done by hand by the CPU). Put some common sense when messing with stuff like that.

would you consider this as infringing upon the likeness of Elvis, if so, please let me know.
Certainly. Anything that looks 'like' Elvis, 'much like' Elvis, 'a bit like' Elvis or even just 'in a way like' Elvis is an infringement, regardless of intention. That means even if your intention was to create an original character, that character turned out to look kind of like Elvis, and you're completely unaware of that fact... you would still be infringing the trademark. The only exception to that (that I am aware of) is parody.
Also, it's the name 'Elvis Presley' that is trademarked, meaning 'Elvis' is not. However, that does not mean use of the name 'Elvis' is safe. If the use of the name 'Elvis' for your product is causing confusion (a court would decide this) over whether that product is associated with the trademark holder in anway, this would be an infringement of their trademark.
Edit: Contact information for Elvis Presley Enterprises for clearing rights etc. can apparently be found here http://www.elvis.com...contact_us.aspx
'nother edit: On the topic of trademark infringement you will probably find this email conversation of satirist David Thorne helpful as it covers an actual case of that http://www.27bslash6.com/covers.html

Native Instruments massive is a pretty common and useful synth. I use it for everything, anyways I just made a tutorial on how to make Nes sounds and tones with it-if you get it or own it.
Also there are some links here to free VST that do the job
Hope this helps.
