insert cable

I want to use an insert cable to monitor effects while recording. I am researching effects units (Lexicon MX200, TC Electronics M-350, and the like); none of which have sends and returns. I haven't set up like this in a long time so I may be missing an important component (a mixer?). Can I monitor effects while recording vocals with one of these units and an insert cable? If I'm totally wrong, please steer me in the right direction. Thank you.

Without a mixer I suppose you'd have to put the effects on the signal coming from the recording device back to the headphones...with a mixer you could put the effect just on the monitoring channels.

Sorry for the slow response, I was hoping somebody that may have some better advice or knowledge may come in and say something.
