When using something like a Firepod or a digital mixer with a USB or Firewire output, do all of the channels show up in your DAW as seperate tracks or is it 1 stereo source?

I want to record drums, but when I hook my mics up to a mixer and then to Audacity, I can't adjust individual tracks after its recorded (nudge kicks, tweak snare eq) the whole kit just becomes 1 recorded track.

I'm trying to convert to computer-based recording, I've been an analog/multi-track user for years and don't get this whole computer interface/firewire/usb/vst plug in/pci/midi stuff.
