So, it's my understanding that the volca kick is a striped down version of the MS-20 synth. I think Tatsuya has done something special in bringing this project to the music-marketplace. I detail my views on the Volca Kick here.

The Kick contains one resonant filter from the MS20, you are going too far to call the Kick a "stripped down version of MS20". You could more accurately describe the Kick by saying it contains "one circuit stripped from MS20".

You are forgetting about the rev. 02 filter too.

I own an original MS-20 with the original dirtier-than-a-sailor's-mouth filters. The Volca Kick definitely doesn't use that LP filter. The kicks I can make on my MS-20 are way crunchier and nastier than anything I can elicit out of the VKick. Not to say the VKick is bad because of that, it's a permanent part of my sound now, just it's a way more polite version of what can be done on an MS-20. There are other factors to the VKick that make it it's own machine though, like the attack transient control. Can't get that out of an MS-20.
