Make multiple hard copy backups of final masters. Your laptop can fail. Your email could be hacked, your Cloud storage could be lost. Remember to store a final masters of your recordings on external hard disk drives or USB sticks you are able to hold. Store them in various places, to shield this content along the line. A fireproof safe, a watertight box, and a region outside of your home are all good ideas.
Write down an elegant list of everybody mixed up in production for liner notes/credits. You will never know when you need to list your complete session players, or when you'll be utilized as a reference with regard to their creative resumes. Make sure you spell their names right, and detail who did what.
