First I need to find the right music and sound creation programs. Almost all music creation programs I have tested have been far too electronic sounding for what I want to make. My goal is to find a program that has a variety like default midi does, mainly the basic stuff. Like pianos, strings, guitars, bass, brass, good percussion, and the rest of the stuff.
To make this more complicating, I do not want it to sound too good or be crazy expensive. By not sounding too good, I mean I want it to sound more like Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, or GBA than something that sounds like an actual band playing with real instruments. To make this simple, I want the instruments my default midi sound library has but have it sound good on the ears. I know I could just rip sounds from games and use those to make music with, but that is something I want to avoid at all costs, seeing how I am going to be making music for games that will be sold legally.
I have tried many music making programs, and I only liked using FL Studio out of them. My issue with FL Studio are it is too expensive and the default instruments on it are too electronic (an issue I listed earlier). The reasons I like using FL Studio are because of its built in keyboard function (it really helps so much) and composing music in the piano roll section.
I do not remember the name of most of the music programs I have used, so I cannot list them all. But if any of you know any music creation program that have a built in keyboard function, easy to compose music with (like using the bars on piano roll in FL Studio), cheap so a poor person like I can afford, and is VST compatible or has a good default sound library, then please share. =p
I also need a good place to start with sound creation. Do you have any suggestions for a good cheap (preferably free) sound effect making program I can use?

The last link (chipsounds) was fantastic, but there is no way I could afford that. ):
As far as the vst search, I have not had any luck and am pretty stressed about it. Either I find too powerful or too electronic.
I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me find what I'm looking for. I want matching pianos, strings, electric bass guitars/acoustic bass, percussion, brass, choir ahhs, etc etc etc that are not too crappy or powerful. The basic stuff, as far as I can tell. But seeing how it's so hard for me to find decent ones, maybe they are not so basic. :\
