Use an external reverb? ;-)

Ok, another suggestion: I forget if the S-760 is able to trigger samples on Note-Off, or key-release. If it can, you could sample a few reverb-tails of your samples, and trigger those on note-off. It would probably even more convincing if you don't start the reverb tail immediately on note-off but a fraction of a second later. Just put a small time of silence in front of the reverb tail sample. This would give you an early reflection effect. You can do some weird stuff too this way, like adding a reverb tail with a different pitch, or a velocity-sensitive reverb.

On the S-330 and S-550 it was possible to create a surprisingly well sounding pseudo-reverb only with the amplitude envelope. The envelope was programmed in a way that the volume rose after the key was released and the fell again. Unfortunately the envelope generators of the S-760 aren't so powerful.
