Turn off email notification sound on Nexus 7

I am using about 3 email accounts and set them up in the standard Gmail app on my Nexus 7 tablet. It's annoying that sound plays when it receives new messages. But I can't figure out how to turn off the notification sound for gmail.

* Go to Settings > Device > Sound, and then Volumes. You should be able to set the Volume all to all the way down for Notifications. But that kills all notifications, not only email.
* Open Gmail App on the tablet. Touch the Menu icon 》 More 》Settings 》 Account Settings 》Email Notifications at the bottom, and set Inbox and Priority Inbox to "Silent".
