How would you synthesize a harpsichord damper sound?

when you let go of a harpsichord key, there’s a damper that kind of thumps down on the vibrating string. i’m wondering how to even put into words my question so let me give it a try:

“how do in Vital?”

you could try mapping envelope decay to lift, so when you release a key fast the note stops fast like you damp it. or maybe to mod wheel, don´t know how it works on a harpsichord.

maybe add some pitch sweep down or lowpass filter sweep down to get closer to a real string when you stop it.
