Perfectly appropriate question - I just skipped over it on the subject
line since I have not been using a mixer (for looping) in many years.

Kill the direct signals passing through the loopers. Set them to "all
wet" signal, ie only sending out the looped signal.

How's that "complicated"? As far as I understand that's as good as
anything. If you want it in mono, that is. But if you want to send a
stereo signal to be looped by the KP you can use both mono sends and
bring back the loops into the mixer on a normal stereo track. You
could also look for a "sub mix" or "sub group" channel/output for the
send output.
