The OPUS-QUAD offers standalone 4-deck playback for versatile DJ performances. This means you can play 4 tracks on 4 different decks simultaneously, cue up tracks in advance, or leave a deck free for dropping requests into your set at a moment’s notice – all with just one unit. You can also assign a different color to each deck, which is matched by the jog ring illumination, so you’ll always know which deck you’re playing with.
How do you like to play? From USB thumb drives or huge SSD drives? By plugging in your PC/Mac that’s running DJ software? By connecting via Wi-FiⓇ to wirelessly play tracks from your smartphone using rekordbox (coming April 2023), or by using rekordbox CloudDirectPlay? You can draw from various music libraries with just 1 OPUS-QUAD and you can even pair a mobile device via BluetoothⓇ/MD wireless technology – perfect if you want to quickly drop a request into your set.
Find your tracks faster and more accurately than ever before with the freshly designed user interface with an electrostatic touch module. No matter how big your music library is, you can use the 10.1-inch touch screen to quickly search for songs via the keyboard or use Playlist Bank for quick navigation between playlists. With Touch Preview, you can even preview tracks while browsing. The new Smart Rotary Selector offers a joystick-like experience with left/right, up/down, rotation, and push control. And the other browsing controls are neatly arranged around the selector so you can scour your music collection and preview and load tracks without moving your hand.
Take control of the music with a slick deck layout that includes a deck display and 8 Hot Cue buttons above each full-size jog wheel. With this arrangement, you don’t need to switch your gaze when manipulating tracks or checking things such as the track information, parameter, and status of each function. And with the new Smart Cue feature*, you can automatically overwrite the current cue position with the recalled Hot Cues. This makes it much quicker and more intuitive than ever before to use Hot Cues with one touch.
*To use the Smart Cue function, ‘Overwrite Current Cue with Hot Cue’ must be turned on in the Utility setting in advance.
Designed to meet the needs of the increasingly diverse DJ scene, the OPUS-QUAD produces high-quality sound that’s comfortable to listen to for long periods of time. The configuration of the unit eliminates transmission loss and AD-DA conversion loss and it’s loaded with a high-quality 32-bit D/A converter from ESS Technology. As a result, wherever you play on the OPUS-QUAD, the entire venue is gently enveloped by a comfortable sound that enhances the spatial experience.
The evolved effects on the OPUS-QUAD make it easy to add texture and tension to the music so you can hype up the crowd and personalize your sound with Beat FX. The XY-Pad makes it easy to control features such as FX Bank and channel select, as Beat FX parameters and the cut-off frequency of the filter are controlled by movement on the X and Y-axis respectively, so you can blend both effects with a single finger. With the popular Smooth Echo feature, you can easily trigger an echo sound by moving a fader or knob you’ve pre-assigned to apply the effect when it’s turned on.
Thanks to the zone output – which can output sound that’s separate from the master – you can play different music in different rooms from just 1 OPUS-QUAD. For example, you could connect a phone to the unit via Bluetooth and set a playlist of background music to play quietly in a bar area or second room where people are socializing while you mix tracks from a USB device in the main room.
Plug-and-play compatibility for rekordbox Performance mode and Serato DJ Pro (coming summer 2023) is included with the OPUS-QUAD. You can simply plug in your PC/Mac running either application to get started – there’s no need for a license or subscription. If you use rekordbox you can also connect to the rekordbox for iOS/Android mobile app (coming April 2023).

Play tracks directly from your laptop as if it were a USB drive via rekordbox Link Export mode.
You’ll be automatically notified when firmware updates become available. You can download the Firmware Update Manager here.
Assign the Smooth Echo effect to your choice from a selection of controls, e.g. a fader or pad. Then, when you turn on Smooth Echo with its dedicated button, the echo will be triggered as soon as you move the relevant control.
The mic input circuit produces crystal-clear sound, even with a high input level.
Using just one knob, you can turn on/off and change the length of a Beat Loop.
