    So the time is coming for me to ditch my old 1GHz dual G4 for something with a bit more under the bonnet (hood, for those of you who think I'm talking about specialist easter headwear). I am in a situation where I could just about afford a new 8-core MacPro with the necessary RAM , HDs etc, but is it worth the extra for audio related work?

    Do Logic or Pro-tools (as I use both) take full advantage of this whole multi threading business or is there no noticeable difference. As a mere user, it would seem to me on the surface that as there are often many, many things going on at once (synthesis, processing, routing etc) that it would really help to use multiple cores but I would really appreciate a bit of clarification before I go and shell out nearly £1000 more.
