Why in the silent parts of the songs does the volume increase extremely?

what would be the reason?

or how many -db should I consider in the stereo tool input so that this does not happen?
This is the effect of Low level boost. You can try disabling it and then rise the level of advanced clipper to compensate for the lower volume and have the same volume consistency.
I am using the Low level boost aggressively, because i'm aiming at making the preset good for even very low quality sources any mitigate the effect of compression, be it from stereo tool or the original source. I listen to a lot of internet radiostations raging from 128 kb/s mp3 to 320 kb/s and my goal is to make it as universal as possible.

Stumbled upon the new adaptive compression and decided to try It. It definitely adds dynamics and details to some of the songs and is worth using. I also fixed auto EQ refusing to reduce trebles on treble-heavy songs. Here's the Final result.
Edit: Also a 4-band AGC version with better treble and also better mids-clipping protection.

One more update with 4-Band AGC. More open with stronger, but not harsh treble+a few more improvements, including better mid-clipping protection. If bass is too much (I'm testing it on bookshelf speakers and it sounds great, but for people with subwoofers or large floorstanding speakers, it might become a little overpowering), try to either lowering true bass volume or bass clipper's drive.

With more weeks of testing, I am leaving two versions worthy of using. The "Ultimate" is the one i will be using as an everyday preset. The preset uses the adaptive mode on both 3 compressors.

The other is an older version with some fixes from Lokva I revised using the adaptive mode.

New version of the "Uncompressed" preset for Stereo tool 10.30. Improvements in highs and vocals, and it now uses the new adaptive mode in AGC with some additional density added.
The other preset is meant to be more calm, closer to the "Orban" presets and suitable for more professional usage (While the "Ultimate" preset, on the other hand, is mostly intended for those who want more exciting sound and is especially suitable for those who don't always use filest/streams with the best quality, and for those who don't have the best equipment). After testing it on stereo tool 10.30, i felt it didn't need any improvement and is better left as it is. :)
