This is really a very general question. In steppers dub which seems to be your preference often you can hear offbeats created with a piano sound. mda piano does that for free. Other often heard key sounds in dub are organs (try out MicroOrgan, Phibes and AZR3) and analog synthesizers (too many options to list examples).
There's nothing wrong with using a synth to create ones own sounds from scatch as you described in your message of course.
There are many approaches to get the key sounds you need. It's really up to your taste and skills..
