No. Unless there is something I'm not aware of.

No. UseLowPassFilter=True is for ST at 44100 Hz and 48000 Hz
sample rates only; UseLowPassFilter=False is for all else
(Anti-alias filter for all else). Both filters are piecewise, both
filters also anti-alias, but the ST filter affects the tonal quality
as the 0.1 microfarad capacitor does in the ST.
