    • Is this possible with Qt?
      Surely. Most c++ compilers can do it.
      Note that on windows, it might only like Visual Studio.

    -Are there easier environments for this?
    That is hard to say. I find c++ easy but Python very confusing.
    Someone using python a lot would say the reverse.
    But there exists binding to other languages i think.
    Myabe java could be easy

    Also depending on what the plugin.
    C++ will be the fastest. (often) but if no heavy
    calculations are done then language don't matter that much.

    So what would make it easy for you ?

    -What are prons and cons of using Qt to build VST plugins?

    Good
    Qt is very flexible
    Qt is cross platform

    Bad
    Qt might be overkill for a small plugin.
    You will get more DLLS to distribute
