Akai MPD 26 Midi Mapping Issue

I am using my Akai MPD 26 to control live visuals for my Live set, I have it set so the faders and knobs control several values of Visual FX and so the Pads turn on and off Visual FX devices.

This all works fine except that for the pads to work, I have to have Ableton Focused on the track containing the FX the Akai is controlling.

The Faders and Knobs work fine, no matter when i'm doing. I'm sure this is due to the pads sending note messages.

Does anyone know how to get around this so I can have Ableton focused on any part of my set and the pads still turn on and off devices.
