In the paper, we present a new family of biorthogonal wavelet transforms and a related library of biorthogonal periodic symmetric waveforms. For the construction, we used the interpolatory discrete splines, which enabled us to design a library of perfect reconstruction filterbanks. These filterbanks are related to Butterworth filters. The construction is performed in a "lifting" manner. The difference from the conventional lifting scheme is that all the transforms are implemented in the frequency domain with the use of the fast Fourier transform (FFT). Two ways to choose the control filters are suggested. The proposed scheme is based on interpolation, and as such, it involves only samples of signals, and it does not require any use of quadrature formulas. These filters have linear-phase property, and the basic waveforms are symmetric. In addition, these filters yield refined frequency resolution.
