As a former singer, I used the humming method most of the time, but there's a few attributes that most vocal lines share:

  • Small pitch steps
  • Off-beat or syncoped rhythm (depends on style however)
  • Ample pauses
  • Melodic segments often "bridging" over contrasting harmony
  • Ostinato

However, all of this is a matter of style. If it was uniformly enough, we'd had a generator done for this long ago ;-)
