I am looking for antonyms for extempore in the context of "to speak extempore", i.e. speak without notes.

You could use rehearsed or scripted as antonyms for extempore.
He gave a very scripted presentation, lacking all spontaneity.
Although her interview seemed lively and extempore, it was in fact well rehearsed.
What about considered, as in 'This is my considered judgment'?
Noting that OP doesn't want the "exhaustively prepared" connotations of words like rehearsed or scripted, I would suggest considered, measured, or careful as ways of describing utterances which aren't carefully pre-planned, yet which suggest a level of forethought missing in extempore.
