I can't think of any ideas (for music composition)

Music composition has been a hobby of mine for a couple of weeks now, but I haven't been able to get the instruments to sound right. I finally got an orchestra plugin that will make the songs I produce sound better (I'm writing orchestral pieces.) However, when I actually go to write something, my mind goes blank. Throughout the day, I think of chord progressions and melodies in my mind, but I can't actually translate that into my software. I'm out of ideas. This is probably due to the fact that the songs in my head sound much better than they would in the software, as I am limited by cheap/free sounds. Hearing those painfully cheap software instruments kind of discourages me and I run out of motivation. However, I really want to write good music. I think I've hit a roadblock. Does anyone have any advice?
