don't forget that music theory was created by people. there is a reason why a minor scale sounds good. it's not a rule, it's by law.
when they wrote down the minor scale, they used their ears.
it's music, so using your ears is a good way to go.
but if you want to create some similar feel like your favourite beat (not biting), you're good if you know theory because that beat probably uses some well known chord progression. that's a lot faster to create if you know theory.

The only guys that didn't know theory sampled because the music is in the samples. The audience wants melody and chords to feel emotions.
The only ones who dint know theory sampled and since sampling is gone, you do the math.
For those of you who want to be producers, take a month outta your life to memorize scales and understand the basics. It will open up your ability to do things efficiently and give you more scope as far as inventiveness.
They are not rules??? MT is a language. Once you speak it, you can say whatever you want.
But if you don't speak the language your will just be mumbling.
To you it makes sense what you are mumbling, but the audience, the ones you are trying to communicate with won't understand you.
You will forever be that retard walking down the street mumbling to himself.
Anyone can make noises, but it takes music theory to speak to peoples souls. (emotions)
