Greets,
I found this site, http://synthesonic.weebly.com/shop-on.html has a page that appears to show the Astral Dreamer Pro still available for sale. The PayPal links were still active, and to my chagrin, readily accepted my order. Don't do it. The download link points to H.G. Fortune's now defunct website and there is no download.

I had my doubts initially, but one last lingering hope to find a registered version of the Astral Dreamer Pro overrode my skepticism. Fortunately, PayPal will allow one to recover payments that are "problematic" so nothing was lost.

Anyway, just a cautionary note for anyone still seeking this wonderful synth.

Cheers.

So is this a, somehow still lingering, alternate version of HGF's website or is it a malicious one that has copied HGF's website? :?:

Curious.

Interesting questions. It is my understanding that Mr. Hager's passing was rather sudden so it's quite probable that he didn't close his PayPal account. The email receipt I received back from PayPal shows the payment going to Gunter Hager, which bears out this supposition.These domains: http://ww2.hgf-synthesizer.de/ and http://www.hgf-synthesizer.com/ are defunct. Hopefully there is nothing shady about this.

I've contacted PayPal already so they will have a look into the matter and I'm to have a reply by June 4th.

It's a zombie page. All shown links are dead. At the shop is an old date Aug 2k14. Seems a hacker's workout!?!

Hi. Wow. I wish I had run across this post yesterday. I submitted my $25 also. Too bad about the author.

Still hoping a Pro version will be available sometime soon. Who is handling Gunter's affairs now? Might it be possible to release a 'free' version of Pro?
