AB switcher for a line level based setup, separate loop output

Here's my setup:

Suhr SL68 -> Suhr Reactive Load -> TC Hall of Fame (mono in/out) -> "XXXXXX" -> Matrix GT1000FX -> (out1) -> guitar cab 1 and (out2 from Matrix) -> guitar cab 2

For the XXXXXX above, I would like to have a looper pedal (like TC Ditto), and I'd like to have the loop output without my live sound going to one of the inputs of the Matrix power amp to feed a cabinet. I'd like to hear my looper output only in guitar cab 1 and do not want to hear my live sound through guitar cab 1. I want to hear my live sound only in guitar cab 2 and do not want to hear the looper output in guitar cab 2.

Summary:
guitar cab 1 (loop output)
guitar cab 2 (live sound)

I basically want to separate my live sound from the looper sound. Does this make sense? I'm thinking sonically this separation into 2 cabinets would be like I'm jamming with a buddy who brought his own identical setup, rather than 2 guys sharing a single cabinet.

How can I accomplish this? I'm dealing with line level signals (4-5dbv) from the Suhr RL. Do I need a ISO buffer? Do I need an ABY switcher? Can I use the TC Ditto? Should I be looking at a looper pedal with 2 outputs?

I don't want to degrade the sound. Please suggest solutions with actual product brand names, and whether I need to consider ground issues/phasing/etc.

Thanks!

Just use the stereo outputs of the HOF, put mono looper on one side going to one cab and set to full wet. Digitech Jamman Stereo has a dry kill function.

I see. I would need to find a looper with a mix knob that goes from dry to full wet. The TC ditto doesn't have this. I'll check the digitech jamman unit. Thx!
