Some mixers and some amps have fx loop i/o and there are stand alone  
passive line level shifters.
So it would be comp>mixer>kp3>mixer>comp

But you may not need that.

Are you using the line out and then returning on line in?
If the line out is  -10db then no need for a level shifter.
What cables are you using? Might be worth trying 1/8 to 1/8 mono  
cables with 1/4 and rca adapters

Sorry I am not familiar with firebox.
You may need to check the mixing software to see if routing is ok and  
no pads active so the line i/o are getting full signal.
And there may be a way to tweak the routing in LIVE - are you putting  
the KP return on its own track?

Not clear what instruments you are trying to effect, but as you know,  
some of the kp3 patches have tone, frequency or cutoff as part of the  
x/y so that can attenuate the signal, you may need to adjust the fx  
depth or wet/dry mix and some patches may not be useful or only  
partially useful for what you are trying to do.

You might try using the Main out rather than the line out in which  
case you will need a level shifter, then return the signal on line in.
Or you can try:   line out to kp > kp headphone out to > line in or  
perhaps even route back into a front panel jack.

There are a lot of variables to play with.
