how to make a clean fx loop setup like edge?

I have a twin reverb (that doesn't need effects in an fx loop, and a marshall jvm (that does need effects back there)

I need to a/b these two amps. And using the 4 cable method to simply want to use a tuner up front and a delay in back is frustrating.

It also presents the problem, that I can't use the delay with the twin and would need a different delay because the other is stuck in the marshalls loops. I am an effects fan and wanted to someday have the access of something like the tc.

What would allow me to easily do a setup like this, and keep the brain in my backline? and just do the switching up front/split my signal straight into the twin?

I would really appreciate the help!

Radial BigShot ABY true bypass AB-Y switcher

possibly try one of these? or the more expensive version?

simple a/b/y your effects like this:

guitar -> tuner ->(cable running back towards your amps) delay ->(cable running back out to front) a/b/y switcher ->(two cables running back towards amps) one cable into each amp.

easy enough? i used to do this with a fender and marshall amp too, except i keep all my effects on the floor up front.

otherwise im not quite sure. the edge's midi system is quite a complex (and fucking expensive) computer.
