An exotemperament or macrotemperament is a very inaccurate temperament, or in other words, one which tempers out an interval that is very large and very low-complexity or otherwise equates wildly different intervals. Examples of exotemperaments are father (tempers out 16/15, ≈111.7¢) or dicot (tempers out 25/24, ≈70.7¢).

The opposite of an exotemperament is a microtemperament.
