Since upgrading to windows 10 I've noticed that some application no longer turn up in the Volume Mixer, and I'm unable to configure their notification sounds/volume like I was able to in Windows 7.

How can I configure these? I don't want to disable notification sounds entirely, for all applications, I just want to be able to volume control them.

Vuze as an example, creates a notification whenever a torrent finishes downloading. I still want the notification, and the sounds, but without it being max-volume and waking the whole family up.

It seems this isn't possible :(

The best solution seems to be to create your own .wav file to replace the one in use with a quieter version.
