Can I use Ampire in real time with no latency

I am going through hell with trying to use ampire. I am a guitar player and every time I attempt to use ampire I get horrible latency problems. Is this designed for real time playing or do I need to play totally clean and then add it after the fact? My friend is using amplitube with a old computer and he has zero latency problems when recording. Why can't I do the same? This is starting to be a real disappointment and I am questioning my decision to go with prosonus. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know if protools has the same problems?

If you are experiencing latency problems I would suggest that you take a look at your device block size. Larger sizes are less stress on your computer to process but result in greater latency. Smaller block sizes result in more stress on your processor but can yield less latency. Another trick would be to raise the sample rate of the interface you are using to its highest available setting. i.e. if it is only on 44.1kHz, try 96kHz if possible. etc.
