iTunes AAC problem sample

Stereo image wrong (even at 192kbps "VBR"), second synth sound which is played to the main "melody" synth (higher frequency one, percussion like used, positioned to the right) sounds strange at 128kbps (in addition to being wrongly positioned), didn't bother to check at 192kpbs.

Uploaded encoded file(s).

EDIT: Each file contains two samples - reference and encoded/decoded.
keeping audio clear together -
