I guess it can help with the composing process if you don't compose intuitively. I knew / know a lot of theory and I can also read / write sheets, but I often find myself composing solely by ear instead. My results are often better if I ignore all the theory. But that's different for every person, I guess. Some people need structure.

Talent helps, I guess. A lot.I mean, why would you even have to know that, if you're making music electronicaly?
For me, Knowing the theory WOULD make the difference between taking 5 minutes to create the note sequence I want...and taking 30 seconds (instead of looking for the note on the piano roll, I'd just clickety it then know instently which one to click next...then get creative with it knowing that certain combinations are meant to work together like that for certain feels)
