- These iOS synths have the power to rival desktop virtual instruments If you haven’t looked at iPads lately, you may not realize how powerful they’ve become. In terms of processing speed, the iPad Air 2 is as powerful as most laptops, and the iPad Pro’s 64-bit A9X processor is almost twice as fast as that.
