I have a Powermac G4 MDD 1.25 ghz.
... can't it also be used with the Pro Tools DSP cards of that era? The Digidesign archive page mentions that in can be used with Pro Tools III PCI too.
Yes, it can, but that's another, even bigger can of worms. Requirement of Rev.QC PCI Matchmaker chips on all cards still apply and, they are scarce.

In addition, I know that it is not supported officially in OS 9 but there is mention in this thread http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=278606  of a working configuration with an AMIII on a G4. Of course, I don't know what "working" means in this case. You mentioned it cannot record, right?
DAE/DSI 5.1.1 ... That's interesting. I never used anything past 3.4.2. Next time I power up that particular machine, I'll try the newer ones out. And yes, I could not record (there was no file produced).

I'm trying to gather as much info as possible to find out if this would be ideal for my workflow...
Here's the link to manual of Atari version of SDII. All functions are the same as far as I can see.

so regarding that digital in and out..  i've never really used that.  what capabilities would that allow?  wondering if that might work maybe with say... and ADAT unit or something..  something that might enable more than 2 in / 2 out RCA.  I've seen gear over the years that has this but never explored it further.  Might have me looking for other possible hardware that could talk to the card that way vs unbalanced RCAs

AM III works great with PT 4 (DAE) and Cubase VST 4 (ASIO) - and with soundmanager, too - but i am not sure about MacOS9 and G4 processors? i wouldnt dare to try. it´s system 7 stuff.

I have a Powermac G4 MDD 1.25 ghz. I know that you need an Audiomedia III card (or Audiomedia II for that matter) to run SDII, but can't it also be used with the Pro Tools DSP cards of that era? The Digidesign archive page mentions that in can be used with Pro Tools III PCI too. I assume that SDII came as a supplementary editor to PT.

In addition, I know that it is not supported officially in OS 9 but there is mention in this thread http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=278606  of a working configuration with an AMIII on a G4. Of course, I don't know what "working" means in this case. You mentioned it cannot record, right?

I don't mind spending some time to configure a system but given the lack of a demo, I'm trying to gather as much info as possible to find out if this would be ideal for my workflow, hence the questions about usability.

This is only a personal project. I don't depend on it to do regular, paying work.

Limited to 24bit/48kHz

24 bit recording on a nubus mac? yeah, you wish. :)
Go do some research, you Klugscheißer :)

.. but wouldn't you need dedicated hardware to be able to run it?
Before answering all your questions, consider this.
1. To make SDII work, you will need Audiomedia III card. Do you have it?
2. To make Audiomedia III card work in post-beige Macs you will need a card with PCI Matchmaker chip Rev.QC or later.

3. SDII is not officially qualified for OS9. (It does not run correctly (no record) in my Digital Audio G4/9.2.2. The AMIII card itself works fine with other software that I use.)

Still wanna go down that route?

(opcode users had their own warez scene?) :P
There have been Opcode user groups as long ago as Compuserve and Topica in the days of 56kb modems.
There was one active on Yahoo until just a few months ago and there's also one on Facebook.
