A 'quad-core CPU' is, after all, just four professor cores on one die (usually with a shared level 3 cache) so to the operating system, two quad-core CPUs is practically the same thing as one-eight core CPU or four dual-core CPUs. The 'dual socket machines are only for specific applications' was only true before multi-core CPUs became common (and even then, a DAW was one of those 'specific applications'). At this point, even *games* are written to multithread. Even REAPER will hand out as many threads as it can- especially if you use its option to have plugins run as a separate process. A Mac Pro is, after all, a dual socket system, and Logic can use multiple cores just fine as well. Pro Tools, it depends on the version, and I'm not sure about Cubase.
