I've got similar problems with a program only using 1 core. Was looking into the possibility to bond cpu cores into 1 virtual core. but no luck so far.

The cores are all available for your computation. Either you have a switch on your software to make use of them, like Blender has on instance, or your application cannot take advantage of many cores. In the latter case you need a different software, provided of course your problem can be parallelised. Another option is to launch many instances of your software to make several calculations with different parameters in parallel.
