> Filters that sharp ring unavoidably. You can sine wave
Gibbs effect ripples aren't a filter artifact. They're a feature of
any bandlimited signal.
Using a less-sharp filter does not eliminate or mitigate the effect,
it simply changes the appearance. It's no different from a little kid
spreading his peas all over his plate so that it looks like there's
less there and he's eaten some.
Spreading the transition band over more space to make it less
noticeable is a) irrelevant once the transition band is above the
hearing range and b) has nothing directly to do with the ripples.
Ringing from an IIR filter with significant internal energy storage
also happens, but that's a different phenomenon.
