You can’t use the Mic-In on a laptop for stereo recording. Instead you may use a Stereo to USB adapter like the UCA-202.
Or, yes, if the USB connection on your mixer is for sound, then plug it into your laptop, wait a bit for the negotiations and then start Audacity. Use the device toolbar to find the mixer, or “USB Sound Device.”
