Default Metronome for varying time signatures

Dear drummers, looking for your piece of advice in the choice of a metronome. There are some songs which we're playing that have time signatures constantly varying: say, 4/4 going into 11/16, then into 7/8 and so on.
I've been making tracks in Cubase on my computer and then downloading those to my player, but this process is quite long and inconvenient, so now I'm looking for a metronome that could help me optimize the routine.

Thank you in advance,
Alexander

-- app for iphone or ipad?

-- drum machine (though tedious in programming -- programming is easier when done with mouse/screen/keyboard compared to entering keys on the drum machine -- your current process might still be better...

-- yamaha clickstation -- though it's already discontinued

- maybe buy a $200 - $300 laptop and use that mainly as a metronome (high end metronomes cost close to this anyway).
Previously I used this freeware but there maybe newer and better free ones out there

Many thanks! Your post really helped: we're now thinking about buying either a drum-machine or some used yamaha clickstation.
