It seems like most metronomes will skip by 4 beats. This is bullshit because if I have a song that is 98 bpm, Im screwed because I have to either settle with 96 or 100.

Metronomes keep you in time.

The countdown is rapidly running out of time.

It was a pun about the illuminati killswitch + metronomes at the same time. It was brilliant

Really? Not something I've ever found in any metronome, they've all done whatever tempo you need.

These days I just use a drum machine though, which works at any speed to the nearest 0.1bpm

You could get a digital one. I have one in my keyboard (the musical instrument, not the typing instrument,) one in my guitar tuner and I can easily make a click track at any tempo with guitar pro.

Really? 2 beats per minute? Surely learn it at that speed and it won't be that hard to speed it up by 2 beats per minute.

My metronome used to do 98BPM but then he got an arrow in the knee...

Seriously 2bpm won't do a big difference when you'll play with the track... or simply get one that do 98bpm !
Have you run your fingers down the wall...

And have you felt your neck skin crawl...
When you're searching for the light ?

The mechanical metronome was around for a long, long time before anybody was ever in a situation when they needed to be at an exact BPM. Up until very recently, playing along with a recording didn't exist, so there wasn't much point or benefit in giving you every single possible bpm option.

Many mechanical metronomes have notches every 2 bpm at the top (slow end) of the arm, transitioning to every 8 bpm at the bottom of the arm. The difference between 192 and 200 bpm is minor, and when the metronome is going that fast you usually just subdivide it down to half (i.e. 96 or 100) bpm anyway.

As others have said, this doesn't generally fall under the category of a "real problem." If you legitimately need adjustments that fine, there are plenty of cheap or free metronomes or metronome apps that will do it for you.

Not sure if you're the right person to be throwing that around.

What exactly is the problem? Just play it at a similar speed and stop being such a noob. If you're playing along to the song you don't need a metronome.
