Sound Supervisor/Warner Brothers, winner of 4 Oscar Awards
I’ve known the guys at Pole for years and since I know them as first class recordists, I wanted to bring them in when we started recording effects for Dunkirk. They were one of three recording teams spread around the world. We had a lot of period aircraft and boat recording to do, and they did some great detective work in locating said aircraft and boats, did an excellent job recording them and made an enormous contribution to the production. I’ll definitely work with them again, they do outstanding work.
Producer @ Unity
I have never encountered a team more preoccupied with detail and care for quality than my dear friends at Pole. It is always a great pleasure and remarkably convenient to ask for their help since there is never anything beyond their reach and the result is always at the highest level. Thank you, Max & Co.
Lead Audio @ Ubisoft Ivory Tower
Working with Pole Position as always been a great pleasure. These guys understand our needs and make every effort to source the perfect cars, ensure recording according to our guidelines and successfully process assets. Without them, the sound of TC2 would certainly not have been what it is!
Audio Editor @ Dice
Max, Mats and Bernard are our local go to recordists, here in Stockholm. Over the past eight years at DICE, we have worked closely with POLE in recording and obtaining world class source material.
James Park Kyung-won
Lead Sound Designer at PUBG/KRAFTON
During the production of PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround we needed top notch vehicle sound effects and since I’d seen some truly awesome REV presets made by Pole I got in touch. Pole delivered wonderful material for experiments with REV and thanks to them the vehicle sounds in PUBG are realistic and enhances the gaming experience. The guys at Pole are very professional and experienced and they always make a huge effort from sourcing vehicles to delivering. We have always been very satisfied with their work and we look forward to working with Pole in the future when we need vehicle sound effects.
While developing Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars we were recommended to contact Pole Position Production for help with music, sfx and audio creation. We’re immensely happy with the result and their work and would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality audio partner! In addition to providing us with exceptional SFX and Music they also helped advise and steer us in the right direction to make the soundscape of the world feel just right!
CEO @ Fall Damage Studio
Fall Damage worked closely with Pole Position to produce the voice over for our game Batalj. It was a smooth process and we were very happy with the result.
Audio Lead @ Anki
Pole delivers stellar content every time. They are also a pleasure to work with. For these reasons, they will always be at the top of my list when I need new sounds for a project.
Audio Director @ Gaijin Entertainment
The guys from the Pole Position Production literally spread all over the world to record authentic engines of tanks and planes for us. As a result, tremendous work has been done in every sense of the word, and I personally got a few new friends.
Audio Director @ EA
Pole Position Production is a regular partner for our recording projects. They deliver great sounding recordings and I know they are always well prepared for eventual problems out in the field.
Sound Effects Editor
Pole Position has leapt to the front of the line with their high quality vehicle recordings. My show “NCIS: New Orleans” has benefitted greatly from their work. Vehicle action sequences require precision, attention to detail, and multi-perspective coverage help to ensure smooth editing throughout the scene. Pole Position products fill those needs beautifully. Keep up the good work!
Audio Lead @ Avalanche Studios
PPP carved out a sonic identity for our vehicles that was aligned with the Just Cause brand and helped to elevate the overall audio quality of the game.
Re-Recording Mixer ``Above and Beyond``
Max Lachmann at Pole Position was wonderful to work with on our film, “Above and Beyond” which centers around the birth of the Israeli Airforce. Authenticity was the key as we had an airplane consultant to ensure the accuracy of the recordings. Max had previously recorded a whole workup on the Messerschmidt ME-109 which is an incredibly rare plane with the engine variant needed. We used these recordings as a hero plane in the film. The fidelity was excellent as was the fullness and richness of the recordings. With no background noise to mar the pristine tracks, we were able to feature them throughout the film.
Senior Sound Designer, Avalanche Studios
When working on the vehicles of Just Cause 3, I used Pole’s vehicle recordings. They were all of outstanding quality, with microphones placed in the engine and exhaust (multiple positions), interior and even pass-bys are available. Thanks to the multiple tracks, you can mix them to the perspective you desire, were your game a third person, top down or first person. The recordings have both steadies for loop based sounds, and ramps for the granular sound models, both well performed for easy editing. Pole have worked in close cooperation with game developers for years, so their recordings are well suited for games. With over a decade of experience, the Pole team knows how to rig the microphones, and also how to drive and perform the vehicle to get the best recordings. Highly recommended!
CEO & Game Director, Poppermost Productions
Max and his team brought new levels of realism to our game by coming up with innovative ways of capturing the exact live-action sounds we needed for our game. They spent days outside during the freezing cold winter working with athletes and the resort personnel to ensure that they returned with every possible variation of every possible effect. Their dedications simply cannot be matched.
Cecilia Norman Mardell
Producer RMV Film
How does it sound when one becomes invisible? What does magic sound like? Mats Lundgren of Pole Position Production has given us the answers in his work on the feature film ”The Circle”. With a huge amount of creativity and ingenuity, Mats has created the sound effects we did not know existed, which magically enhanced the sound and accomplished the film. I can strongly recommend working with Mats Lundgren and Pole Position Production, you will not be disappointed.
TV sound effects editor
The people at Pole are simply amazing. They always do their very best to help out as fast as possible and the quality of their sounds is outstanding.

“theHunter: Call of the Wild would not be complete without Pole Position’s fantastic musical score in all reserves. A smooth collaboration even on tight deadlines is what makes us come back every time!”
