"Mic" was a demo created during the period leading up to the Hybrid Theory sessions. It was leaked online in June 2019. The song uses a Macintosh voice called Zarvox which was introduced in 1995 with the MacinTalk 3 text-to-speech component.


Mike's first computer was an Apple as he explained on his blog. He wrote, "In college, I was reintroduced to Apple in a new way. Having spent years honing my skills drawing and painting, I hadn’t yet had the chance to bring those illustrations into the computer. At Art Center, there was a computer lab–a huge underground complex of rooms filled with computers. And the computer of choice for the designers and artists at Art Center was Apple. I loved the design, inside and out, and it seemed built for making art. And once it was my computer for art, it became my computer for music."[1]
