Keeping an application running in the background


I am using a program to covert keystrokes to MIDI notes called MidiKeys. These midi notes go through logic to play a piano note.

The problem is, MidiKeys only converts the keystrokes to MIDI when it is active and in the fore-ground. If I click on anything in Logic, MidiKeys goes to the background and stops making the conversions and I get no sound. This makes things very frustrating becuase I'd like to be able to play the notes while I'm clicking around in Logic, not one or the other.

Is there anyway to keep a program active and in the foreground while using another program? Or is there anyway keep MidiKeys in the background but still have it making the conversions?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
