Yes the inputs can accept both balanced and unbalanced connections - so if your keyboard only has unbalanced outputs then that's fine. But you should ideally be using the line inputs 5-8 to avoid going through the preamp.

The switch is for level and doesn't really care if the incoming signal is balanced or not. Start at +4 and adjust the keyboard volume. If you can't get the meters up to the yellow, switch to the -10 setting.
