Looking to Make Funk (Arturia V Which Synth?)

Hi guys, I am looking to produce some funk music in ableton. What kind of synth or keys do I want to use for this style? I have the arturia V collection and Komplete 9... Feel free to delve deeper into sub genres if you are very knowledgeable!

By no means comprehensive...but I would start with:

Moog (either mini or modular): Bass and lead lines

FM8: Digital E piano or additional digital bass
Prophet: Pads and stabs
Hammond organ

Add sampled brass as appropriate, rhythm guitar, and drums

Mix to taste

Sorry if this sounds generic. You have access to some great sounds with those two software packages...should be a cinch to come up with funk sounds.
