The Iconasys Turntable Controller is a standalone software that can be used with current Iconasys turntables and with any 3rd party programs that supports Shutter Release.

Step-by-step guide:

To install the Iconasys Turntable Controller you will need to first install the turntable drivers and then download and install the turntable controller software.  

Detailed steps are:

  1. Install the FTDI drivers. This is needed only if you don't have ShutterStream already running with the turntable. If ShutterStream already works, then the drivers are installed and you can skip this step:

    If running on Linux then proceed as follows:

    1. After unzipping the turntable controller software, switch to the Iconasys Turntable Controller location.
    2. Run the command: sudo ./IconasysTurntableController (or you can add usb permission to standard user if sudo is not permitted)
    3. If you receive the message "Turntable not opened", the kernel automatically loaded another driver for the FTDI usb device, so you need to unload them as follows:
      1. sudo rmmod ftdi_sio
      2. sudo rmmod usbserial
    No driver in Linux, just the steps listed.
  2. Download and install the software:
