Recording to computer from Peavey mixer with USB out - what do I need?

I want to start recording from a Peavey 20 channel mixer board with a USB output to a laptop. Do I need anything else between the board and the laptop? This is in a church, if that makes a difference.

Plug it in and find the driver!

If your mixer has a USB port, you should be able to go directly to a computer. Keep in mind that you will need a driver to run it - most times the driver is available from the manufacturer's website. Search for your mixer's model number and "driver".

Once you install the driver, you can go into your recording program and find the mixer wherever the input devices are listed. Look at your mixer's documentation to find out how many channels it supports, and how to operate it. You can maybe find a downloadable manual on the manufacturer's website too.
