Wow, thanks everybody for great solutions!
Ingo's answer is the most satisfying for me because it stays in vanilla. For now, I will just subpatch it in my project and use it as a reference, but I must admit it will take some time before I really understand every part of that patch.
All the best!

You can use [list fromsymbol] to convert the symbol to a list of ASCII
values and than work on that. See attached patch, it should do what you
Note that the patch assumes that the ending (like .wav) is always 4
characters. Also it uses a simple list-drip mechanism that should be
efficient for small lists, in doubt use list-drip of list-abs instead.
best wishes, ingo
