I'm just starting to train with a metronome sometimes.  I have one built into my chromatic tuner (MeIdeal MT560W), and it has some nice features.  But it chirps instead of clicking.

It distinguishes between the the first beat and other beats.  But the chirps have pitch.  I detect for example that for 3/4 time, it plays a Bb on the first beat and the Bb an octave lower on the other two beats.

I don't know---is this going to affect my intonation when I am playing in certain keys?  I mean there is not even a Bb in the more commonly-used keys.  I like to turn the metronome volume up fairly loud, and I would prefer not to have to think about the pitch throwing me off.

Do you know of an electronic metronome that produces clicks instead of chirps?  It has to be one that I can use in the ear, as I don't want the metronome to be heard in case I am recording.

Alternatively, it would be fine if it produces chirps at the pitch that I can choose.

I believe that all of our tuners (except for the fork ;-) ) have built in metronomes:

Actually this is my favorite metronome https://fiddlerman.com/fiddle-.....metronome/ You can choose between difernt sounds, cow bell is my favorite, and also have a visual refernce like mechanical metronomes.
