How tokens work

Since the audio processing is cloud-based and server costs are calculated on per-minute basis, SoundID VoiceAI is a pay-as-you-go model, enabling you to pay for the token packs needed for audio processing only. There are no subscription fees or other hidden charges involved, and the SoundID VoiceAI plugin itself is free to download and install. Here is what you need to know:

  • Processing cost: 600 tokens = 1 minute of audio processing.
  • A minimum charge of 70 tokens (7 seconds) applies for each processing instance, followed by 10 tokens (1 second) increments.
  • Transpose adjustments to an already processed audio capture will require re-processing


How are tokens calculated when processing audio?

Here's a realistic example of tokens spent in a specific scenario - vocal replacement for a full song:

  1. Capturing a 12 seconds sample audio of a voice track
  2. Processing the sample with 5 voice presets and trying 3 different Transpose settings on each preset to find the best fit: 12x5x3 = 180 seconds / 3 minutes = 1800 tokens
  3. Processing the entire vocal track of 2.5 minutes = 1500 tokens
  4. Total processing time and token cost: 5.5 minutes = 3300 tokens
