I'm looking to build a new PC as well and use CPU hungry fx's and vi's. From what I've seen, a high core count is great if you run a crazy amount of tracks. However, let's say you run a heavy vi and you put some fx on that, if you route this track to a bus with more fx and that goes to the master with again more fx, the single core performance can quickly become the bottleneck. You might be able to get around this by rethinking how you arrange your projects and maybe DAW's and fx will make better use of high core counts as they become more main stream, but for now a i9 9900k overclocked to 5ghz might be the best option for the majority of users. Personally I'm probably still going for Ryzen or even Treadripper, but I use my PC for 3d rendering as well.
