Not surprising, what you get a lont of in software bundles is trialware or very stripped down version of shareware or premium software

Another vote here for the Behringer UCA202. It's the most basic of
their low-cost interfaces, but I bet they all have the same DAC, so
it's a matter of what features you want. Besides the USB interface,
it's got just an analog stereo in and out (RCA connectors.) For a
little bit more you can get one with a phono preamp or mic inputs and
preamp. This one's good enough for me, and I've transferred dozens of
LPs to digital with it. Cheap and cheerful.

This is amusing: one Behringer product is the UCA222... which appears
to be identical to the UCA202 except that it's (gasp!)... RED! And it
includes a "Massive software bundle including Audacity"!!! How generous
of them to include freely available software with their commercial
product. I bet it's not the latest version, either.
