Free Windows sound recorder needed

Here's a question for you software experts out there. Do you know of a free, simple, no-frills sound recorder application that can record audio from any sound card?

Windows Sound Recorder has the simplicity I need, but it can only record from the default recording device. If I want to record from the radio I have to change the default input device to whatever sound card is attached to that radio. This usually results in hours of head-scratching later on after I forget to switch the default sound card back.

Audacity is the sound recorder application most people recommend. It is free, and it can record from any sound card, but the user interface is so complicated I can't figure out how to use it.

So I have decided to ask you, my readers. I imagine this is something that many hams have tried to do. What do you use?
