What I used when I need the same functionality:

delta = |input PTS - expected PTS|


basically enables soft/hard compensation in case delta >= d.

Compensation consists in applying one of these:
stretching/squeezing (soft compensation)
filling or trimming (hard compensation)

Since you want to enable *filling*/padding in this case,
min_hard_comp=0.1 will add samples if delta >= 0.1 (this happens in
case of big delay at the beginning of the file), soft compensation in
case of "small" (<0.1 seconds) gaps. Since min_hard_comp=0.1 is the
default, you can simply set equivalently:

See the ffmpeg-resampler(1) manual for more info.

There is no way to exactly duplicate the asyncts functionality -
padding *only* at the file beginning. asyncts can be enabled with
--enable-libavresample when building.

See also asetpts, ashowinfo, aselect filters.
