It's the other way around, sinc is the new name (since 2009).

That's because "filter" isn't a valid effect name, to it's parsed as an
argument to the "gail" effect which (rightly) rejects it.

That's a very old version of the man page.  Unfortunately, the current
one is also wrong.  Someone simply forgot to update that example at some
point.  I've fixed it just now.

Here's the updated command:

    play track1.wav gain -3 sinc -n 29 -b 100 8000 mcompand \
      "0.005,0.1 -47,-40,-34,-34,-17,-33" 100 \
      "0.003,0.05 -47,-40,-34,-34,-17,-33" 400 \
      "0.000625,0.0125 -47,-40,-34,-34,-15,-33" 1600 \
      "0.0001,0.025 -47,-40,-34,-34,-31,-31,-0,-30" 6400 \
      "0,0.025 -38,-31,-28,-28,-0,-25" \
      gain 15 highpass 22 highpass 22 sinc -n 255 -b 16 -17500 \
      gain 9 lowpass -1 17801

Hope this helps.
