Use USB Audio/Midi interface as midi only interface

In my studio setup I have an Orion 32 with an rme madiface USB, which is great but I need to add midi.
At home I want to get something like an spl crimson for tracking.
Can I disable the audio side of a small audio/midi interface like this and have my studio PC see it as a midi only device to save me having to buy a standalone midi interface for the studio? Running Windows 10.

It might work if you choose just the RME for audio and just the Crimson midi in your DAW preferences. What is the midi controller you plan on using?

I don't really use a controller as I mix otb. I'll mostly be recording midi keyboards and triggering outboard synths and drum machines.
Looking at this now I might just go for something like an esi midimate. Anyone know if there's much of a difference quality wise between the midimate and their larger interfaces like the m4u?

Doesn't your midi keyboard have USB?
