Here is what I got on this and some quick research results.
BehringerUM2 U-PHORIA USB Audio Interface
Presonus AUDIOBOX USBAudio Interface
Presonus AudioBox USB96 2x2 USB Recording System
A great choice for mobile musicians and podcasters, the2-channel AudioBox USB
96 is bus-powered, compact, ruggedly built, and workswith virtually any PC or
Mac recording software. It boasts high-performanceClass A mic preamplifiers and
professional-quality, 24-bit, 96 kHz converters.And it comes with PreSonus’
Studio One 3Artist DAW
Note Audacity does not to my knowledge support Daw so if youuse Studio one
which is a very complex program you may not be able to importthem as daw you
can do as I do and inport them as wave after mixing each trackdown to wave in
studio one that is the work around I was speaking of.
You maybe able to get a cheaper one without the Studio onepackage
I have a PresSonus interface and I am very happy with it. It has all the
abobve USB XRL it can take ¼ . Todo 1/8 you would need an adapter as well if
you want to use a 1/8 headset theheadset is ¼ female it does midi RC and Adadt
also has a multi port that doesboth XRL and ¼
And I just tried it on Audacity it does show up in mike andspeakers choices in
Audacity however it also depends on your PC and/or soundcard.
Here is a link to a audacity forum that speaks in that and italso mentions with
multi tracking at the same time which Dave had said in aprior post.
Audacity does not support ASIO drivers (due to licensingrestrictions) so if you
get an ASIO sound card, make sure that it hasalternative drivers (for Windows
these are usually called WDM drivers)
What happens is I can do up to 2 lines in at the same timeon a stereo track.
Left side is one channel right being the other. I also canor have to if I do
one at a time split the stereo channel so I can then panleft or right separate
to each channel.
What I am not able to do is more then 2 at a time that’s whyI was looking at
the others mentioned and had a same question what one can domulti tracks in
Audacity particularly 4 tracks.
Its important to verify with that any interface you get will work with Audacity
and/or your PC laptop etc.
See link below a similar question was asked on another Audacity forum

Subject: [audacity4blind] Audio interfaces for Windows
Hey guys, so Iam trying to record, so I’m wondering if there are audio
interfaces available for lowcost, with either a quarter inch adapter one, or an
XLR one. And Ineed a spot with a 3.5 mm jack for headphones. This would be for
a mic, but I could also use one for line-in for my keyboard 3.5mm jack as well.
This would go in to a USB of my Windows computer. I have the latest version of
audacity. As cheap as possible, but still good.
