Sub-sample alignment of the MinBLEP will create some variation. Also, if the engine runs at high resolution and then dithers down to 24-bit to avoid correlated quantization, that will add some randomness by definition.

I also assume that each step is potentially a different amplitude, and thus the MinBLEP would be scaled differently each time it's mixed it.

You can do all the hard sums offline, generate one massive look-up table of the band-limited edge correction, and then you just paste the right bits into the right places and all the aliasing disappears. That’s why I described it as “magical”!
