It depends. Some have huge studios and some don't even have time for one because they are always touring.

sample packs, techniques, etc. these guys are using because I get the feeling that they are not going into a traditional studio and making all of their sounds live, or even doing bedroom recording with musique conrete type sound-sculpting, but it also definitely doesn’t sound like they’re just manipulating the presets in their DAW either.
Most "real" instruments you hear in electronic music are just sample libraries for different sample-based plugins (aka samplers). These days software is so powerful that even Hollywood film producers don't necessarily hire a real orchestra. Synthesizing and processing your own sounds on the other hand is a completely different matter, it's just practice, practice and practice plus a bit of science.
