Tilted screen is what i would miss the most if i would be changning to Studio. And the knobs of course. I don't use the sound card (right now) so i wouldn't miss the interface thing. After those three it's basically exactly the same i think. Same amount of buttons etc apart from the keypad(?).

Vintage mode now works equally more or less between the two as of v1.8. The MPC software itself is the same, basically allowing anyone with both a Studio and Ren to work on the go with the more portable option just the same as they can in the studio with the less portable option.

If the MPC Studio will suit your current needs just fine, what you're missing by not having the Ren isn't at all very important.
That's what i was thinking but with the new update 1.8.2 and i'm pretty much set in the sample and instrument dept.I didn't think i would be missing much as long i can control all aspects of said software from the studio.Now where tha hell is the mailman

Someone told me on the MPC 2000xl, they swing their hats on 1/16 to 55. On the Ren, nothing happens on 1/16 with swing. Is there a reason or way I can replicate the 2000xl swing?

Its hard to tell with just 16th hihats, if at all. Your just moving the notes evenly on the MPC. Use a syncopated kick and youll hear it easier.
