Help choosing mixer to avoid loop

I'm not familiar with mixers, and I'm toying with the idea of getting the Behringer q802usb.

Do you know whether it would allow for a subset of the stereo inputs to go out from the mixer to a recording device without causing a loop?
he's the problem:
one of the two keyboards is also the recorder device. So I would want all mixer inputs playing from the speakers, and all inputs minus the keyboard itself fed into its own linein for recording.

Here's my setup:
-stereo synth to mixer
-stereo keyboard to mixer
-stereo smartphone to mixer
-mixer to speakers ( all signals)
-mixer to keyboard lineins for recording ( all minus keyboard's own signal )

how can I handle this without creating a loop? Does this sound feasible somehow?

Yes.
Synth > 3/4
Smartphone > 5/6
Keyboard out (minus the input of the keyboard) > 2 - track in
Keyboard in < Ctrl room out
Speakers - main out
Switch 2-track, to main on, to Ctrl room off.

Many thanks!
Would this configuration allow to record and playback the synth, keyboard and smartphone from the speakers & headphones at the very same time ?

Also I'm not sure of what you mean by
Keyboard out (minus the input of the keyboard) > 2 - track in
I believe the kawai mp7se, (my keyboard-recorder) merges line-in with the line-out and that is what comes out from line-out as well as what gets recorder.

I'm not tied to the Q802USB and welcome any other suggestion which would work better for me, any other mixer you would recommend?

In that case:
Synth > 3/4
Smartphone > 5/6
Keyboard out > 2 - track in
Keyboard in < Main out
Speakers (headphone) - Ctrl room out
Switch 2-track, to main off, to Ctrl room on.

Why not record on a computer with the usb out of the mixer?
