I've been a bit feed-up with the default metronome click in Cubase, and even though you can change the click to other samples, I find them intrusive too.

I came across a post online about the system used in Hollywood back in the day using a UREI 964 Digital Metronome  (see picture)

Quote
UREI ..., Universal Audio was thriving upstairs in the first Hollywood building under the new name United Recording Electronics Industries (UREI)

I got hold of a wav file of the click from this device, attached below, in case anybody wants to use it. I believe it's still a standard used by music film composers even in this day and age. 

It is basically a square wave I believe so it's very precise and I have found it 'there  - but not there'  if you get my meaning. It reminds me a bit of a foot tapping.

I'm not sure anybody is interested but I thought I'd post it.

Oh @MrBouzouki
Thanks, I think. Now you gave me something else to think about......swapping out the sample on the metronome? It never even occurred to me. I thought metronomes were supposed to be annoying.  ;)
