Can I still plug my midi controller via usb while using an external interface?

This might be kind of a noobie question, but then again I'm relatively new to all of this.

Currently I'm just using the internal audio interface on my mac, but I'm about to purchase an external audio interface. What I want to know is if I can still plug my midi controller into the usb port on my computer as opposed to plugging it into a midi port on the interface and be able to use both my midi controller and anything plugged into the external interface simultaneously, without having to keep switching between my interfaces in my DAW's settings?
