How to learn orchestration, instrumentation, arrangement etc.

Caustic Song file (optional): 

I've been trying to make tracks (mostly house one) for like a year, but can't really make some thing good enough. There are so many problems like synthesizing COOL sounds, layering them (most confusing) etc. But the most important ones are ARRANGING, ORCHESTRATING & INSTRUMENTATION. BTW , by arrangement I mean micro things like how to join a build up and a drop so it doesn't sounds like someone pressed the next song button!

Oh, and if someone can upload a few caustic files, that would be awesome, doesn't have to be original (preferably house and dnb)

I'm happy to send you some

I'm happy to send you some files that are house-ish and Drum and Bass-ish laugh

I don't do build ups and drops though - my thing is more about repetition, groove and cool sounds.

There is mind set I use to

There is mind set I use to boost my creativity in mixing. And this the technic.
1. Find the sounds you like.
Try to make a sequence or a melody , then load the next mashine, compose the same sequence in reverse. Then take the reverse sequence and cut the first half of a patern and proceed to the next measure. It seems dumb but everything you do with this reversed programming will eventually be very easy to mix. I hope this helps. :)
