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.

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