I want to run the MSDI XLR into a looper pedal, then into the mixer and PA. It's a 3 pin XLR, and I'll make the adapter to 1/4. Question is, how do I connect it? I've seen scematics that suggest pin#2 is the hot (tip of the 1/4 plug), and I need to short pins 1 and 3 and connect to the sleeve of the 1/4.

Is this correct?

Might be an obvious question, but why don't you run the looper in the effects loop?

It's not obvious, thanks for asking.

I will be using Radial Tonebone VT to switch between two tube amp heads and using the same cab. If I put the looper in the FX loop of one amp, and accidentally have a loop playing when I switch to the other amp head, the amp will fry because it will be de facto with no speaker connected to it to take the load.

Sure, just checking, that makes perfect sense. And what about cables that have an XLR and a 1/4 jack? Why make an adapter yourself when you could buy a ready-to-go cable for five bucks?

I suck at electrical work, so I'm dodging the actual question here

Another good question, to which I don't have an answer I guess I just love my soldering iron

That's a great answer let's hope that someone can help.

It's much cheaper to make your own cables if you want good quality stuff.

If you only want some cable to do stuff you don't care about the quality and reliability of, these cables you're talking about would do.

As for the wiring TS, there's no "suggesting", it's a standard.

Look up "xlr pinout" on google.
Pin 1 is the ground, pin 2 is hot and pin 3 is cold.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Right, I've heard a lot of people say that DIY cables are much better in terms of price and quality, haven't tried it myself yet though.
