Building an audio recording computer. Is there a way to get dual quad core xeon cpu's with hyperthreading?

I have audio recording software (Cubase) that can take advantage of multiple CPU core processing. I'd like to know if I can find a dual socket motherboard that will utilize two (2) quad core XEON processors capable of hyperthreading? I believe that would give me 16 theoretical cores of processing. Is this possible or even feasible?
Thanks

Are you looking for this kind of boards: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon7000... ?

Yes, it's possible. It'll be very expensive, though, and I'm really not sure you need it - why do you feel like you need that much heft?

The above one supports upto 4 CPU, but supports less RAM.

You might check this one too: http://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-X8DAH-F-Motherboard-du...

But these kind of boards are for server purpose, not for Desktop use.[/quotemsg

I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for to be honest. Audio processing seems to be difficult to get glitch free results with anything short of a supercomputer. I just figured dual quad core CPUs that were capable of hyperthreading would have to be more than adequate given the appropriate drives, memory, etc. Thanks much for your reply. 4 CPUs may be a bit of an overkill especially for my wallet!

ultimeter, actually you don't need a Supermicro kind of server motherboard.

Asus Maximus VI Hero with i7 processor and 32GB RAM, SSD(500GB+) will work best for your work.

Have you ever thought having 32GB RAM and a higher volume SSD for your work?

SSD will do the work faster for you.
