One of the things that I did when I got annoyed about the mono send was to take one of my fx pedals that was mono in - stereo out and use it instead of a Y cable. I have an Arion chorus and a delay that I use for this. The delay is especially fun in this situation.

Great tips all - Thanks!
After all of the great feedback I've received here, it sounds like I may just end up sending the signal like so: Mixer FX Out > Mono "Y" Splitter > KP3 > RC-20XL > FX Return.
Set up this way, I won't be able to "bounce" a loop back and forth between the two loopers, but I'll at least be able to create my loops on the KP3 and pass that off to the RC-20XL to free the KP3 up for the next layer. Not perfect, but not bad, either.
Appreciate all the help!

I've been through something like this too. I don't think it's possible to do all you want with one setup. I wound up with a bigger mixer, well, two mixers actually.
You can keep the stereo signal by splitting each of the sends with a "Y" cable. Send Aux 1 to the left in, and Aux 2 to the right in. You will have to use 4 channels in the mixer if you are using a stereo input signal. I don't think you will be able to send from one looper to the other.
I wound up getting a 2442fx and I still needed another mixer to get everything I wanted hooked up with the stereo signal preserved.
Does that 1222 have a ALT 3/4 send? If it does, then you might be able to work it out. I used my alt 3/4 to send to the PC for recording, so it didn't help my looper wiring. You could use the sends for a left/right pair and the ALT 3/4 for another.
Having nono sends just makes no sense to me. With all the stereo channels, why would one want to sum to mono to send through fx? dumb.

I've been trying to solve this little puzzle for a couple nights now, and at long last turn to the hive mind to sort it all out.
Here are the critical components:
Two loopers - A KP3 and Boss RC-50.
One 12 channel mixer, a Behringer Xenyx 1222FX, with two mono sends - One labled FX, one labeled MON - Upon review of the manual, they are effectively the same thing. Each of the 12 channels has two knobs that determines the amount of the signal being sent to either of the sends.
What I'd like to be able to do is to send to either OR both of the loopers, as well as send back and forth between the loopers. I understand that I can return either looper to its own channel, but feedback becomes an issue when I use this method to send to each other via channels. Is there any way to accomplish the setup I'm looking for?
Further complicating the issue is the fact that the KP3 is stereo in, stereo out, while the send it self is mono - Currently I'm just using a stereo to mono adapter to "monoize" the signal before it hits the kp3.
