Advantage of Multi Core CPU's

I have looked but no real advice on this subject. I'm needing to upgrade my system badly.

p4 2.66ghz
2048 mb ddr2 533
M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R (ASIO sound)

tons of storage and decent video.

I want to upgrade the MOBO/CPU/RAM. In order to make a good CPU choice I need to consider speed of a single/dual core vs. the advantage of quad/six core CPU. Reason 5 is my meat and potatoes for production. So, if it doesn't qualify as a multi threaded app then I should go with a higher clock speed CPU. The higher multi cores tend to have slower single core speeds.

Does Reason 5.0 take advantage of multiple core processors or is it a single thread application?
