Some more info - the same issue happens in GarageBand.
If I don't use the M20d audio send for playback and instead send my Mac's stero out to the aux in, there is no issue, so I'm working that way for now. With that, it seems there is a delay in playback when using the USB interface for output and it isn't in sync to the input. I can manage this way for now, but would assume the M20d USB audio out is better quality than the headphone out of the computer so if anyone knows a work-around to get them in-sync it would be appreciated!

The M20d is not designed as an audio interface for recording purposes, other than to capture the original channel recordings via usb/SD/PC. It has latency issues as you describe that render it ineffective as a general purpose recording interface. It is designed to capture an original recording, directly to DAW or transferable to DAW from usb/SD devices. After that, you need to use your DAW and another audio interface for overdubbing and post-processing.
The latency issues that you describe in the M20d are inherent in the current firmware and drivers. There is no workaround as it is. A future firmware update may include an imnproved ASIO driver, but for now it is what it is - not designed as a studio audio interface. It is a live performance mixer; the recording features support sound checks and basic audio capture of a live performance for subsequent overdubbing and post-processing in your DAW usibng a studio audio interface device.
