This is not true.
utilize Hyperthreading (virtual cores) for everything except rendering audio. This includes GUI drawing, high quality stretch+resample and disk I/O.
I'm not sure where people are getting this from (that HT isn't taken advantage of). Perhaps it's the old mention in the manual that Pentium 4 single-core processors should have Hyperthreading turned off in Reason, but who uses a Pentium 4 anymore??? (ducks)
